Dallas Willard's Hearing God, Updated and Expanded: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God is the most practical, straightforward, and helpful theological resource on communicating with God I have ever encountered. Communicating with God may very well be the most pressing and least understood aspect of the Christian spiritual life today, and too often, I have worked with people who do not expect to hear from God, or who believe hearing from God is a spiritual experience reserved only for select holy men and women. This is despite the fact they have been invited to enter a "personal relationship with God."Moving methodically and with precision, Willard introduces the reader to the "paradox in the contemporary experience and understanding of hearing God." On the one hand, "we have massive testimony to and widespread faith in God's personal, guiding communicating with us," and on the other we "find a pervasive and often painful uncertainty about how hearing God's voice actually works." Willard then gives guidelines for hearing from God, assurance that God is with us, an examination of God's speaking in the created order, and the nature of God's voice as "still and small" amidst competing voices. Then, Willard examines God's Word and God's rule, the transformation that comes through hearing and believing the gospel about Jesus, the ongoing role of Scripture in furthering that transformation in the life of the disciple, wisdom in how we discern God's voice, and, lastly, how we listen for God in the everyday, beyond matters of simple guidance, growing in friendship with him. This book is narrowly focused but incredibly deep, laser-like but possessing a unique breadth. It is a treasure.
