Recommended and in the Knox Library: “Hearing God in Conversation: How to Recognize His Voice Everywhere” by
If Christianity is a relationship with God, how many of us would say we have a strong, meaningful connection with him? After all, it’s widely accepted that the foundation of any good relationship is communication–and conversation with God often seems to be one-sided at best. We may long to hear his voice, but does God still talk with us today? Should we even expect him to?
Sam Williamson gives us good news: God is always speaking–we’ve just never been taught how to recognize his voice amid the clamor. Williamson shares the secrets of finding God’s voice everywhere–in Scripture, of course, but also in the checkout line, on the job, in a movie theater, and even in silence. He delves into what it really means to pray without ceasing, how we can brainstorm with God, how to discern God’s voice from the rest, and how to hear God’s voice for others–without letting your own feelings get in the way.
With Williamson’s characteristic candor and leavening humor, Hearing God in Conversation bridges the gap between solid biblical theology and practical application. By the end, your eyes and ears will be opened to the limitless ways in which God speaks, and your relationship with him will have a firm foundation.
