Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God

Hearing God is a new and expanded version of Willard’s first book for Christian audiences, IN SEARCH OF GUIDANCE.
“Hearing God is about having a conversational relationship with God in which we go to God for guidance for very specific circumstances in our lives. The Bible is full of the wisdom of God and all the principles by which God wants us to live, but you won’t be able to go to the Bible to find a specific answer on who you should marry, where you should go to college, how many kids to have, what kind of career to pursue, and a host of other areas where we could use guidance. … Willard makes the case that we live in a communicative cosmos. Words are foundational to our existence. God created the universe by his word. Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. The Bible is the Word of God. All of creation is even sustained by God’s word. If we understand that God wants to communicate with us, then our hearts are more likely to be drawn toward him. So Willard presents to us why we should expect a conversational relationship with God and why we should pursue it.”  (From the ERB review by Tom FarrRead the full review )

  1. The two most influential for me were Renovation of the Heart and The Divine Conspiracy. Both have shaped my ministry as well as the trajectory of my personal life (I am in my current doctoral program in large part due to the change in thinking those two books caused in my life).
    Have also read Spirit of the Disciplines, Hearing God and listened to many lectures and talks.
