- Product Review (submitted on April 5, 2013):
Hearing God by Dallas Willard is a comprehensive and informative guide to hearing from God. It is one of the most important elements of a Christian’s life and can often be one of the most difficult things as it requires a lot of patience and dedication.
The idea of the book is that Christians should be engaged in conversational prayer rather than a one-sided monologue of requests. Willard presents that God not only wants to talk to His children but He already is but they just aren’t listening. Willard provides some helpful suggestions and Biblically based examples of how to listen to God as well as debunking some myths about hearing from God.
The narration was a little too fast and due to the sometimes complex nature of the text it made it a bit hard but it wasn’t too bad.
This book is a very good resource for any Christian who is struggling to hear from God in general or about a particular pressing matter. It is Biblically based and contains some sound advice for hearing from God.
