Hearing God

Developing a Conversational Relationship with God

by Dallas Willard

”God spoke to me.”

”The Spirit spoke to my heart.”

”God revealed the idea to me.”

Being close to God means communicating with him—telling him what is on our hearts in prayer and hearing and understanding what he is saying to us. It is this second half of our conversation with God that is so important but that can also be so difficult. How do we hear his voice? How can we be sure that what we think we hear is not our own subconscious? What role does the Bible play? What if what God says to us is not clear?

The key, says best-selling author Dallas Willard, is to focus not so much on individual actions and decisions as on building our personal relationship with our Creator. In this updated and expanded edition of Willard's beloved book, originally published as In Search of Guidance, you'll gain rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God's voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the work of his kingdom.

Reformatted to be even easier to read, Hearing God also includes new material from the author's teaching at the Renovaré Institute. A new appendix highlights key questions related to hearing God and helps you find the answers in the text, as does the Scripture index. Also added to this edition are six lectio divina exercises placed throughout the book that guide you into the experience of hearing God. An enduring classic that is one of today's best resources for learning to listen closely to God.

The beauty of this book is the way it exposes the reader to hearing God through obedience to him. . . . You may need, as I did, to read and read it again, but it is well worth it.
