How do we hear God's 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 DVD you and your group can listen in as John Ortberg and Richard Foster dialogue with Dallas Willard on the themes of his beloved classic book, Hearing God. A small group discussion guide is also included, making it easy for group leaders to lead discussion after the video.
Read the book together, and then bring Ortberg, Foster and Willard to your next meeting. You might be surprised at what you hear when you really start listening to God in community.
"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."
"In this volume he lays out a needed and balanced view of a God who not only listens to his children but speaks to them as well. The problem is not that God is voiceless but that we simply do not listen to his voice and that is because we don't know how to listen."
"Few books have challenged me like this one. I would urge every serious-minded Christian to read it . . . at your own risk."
"The best book on divine guidance I have ever read. I recommend it highly."
"Willard wonderfully encourages us to listen for God's voice, and then to respond and obey. This is a book of great encouragement and helpful insights into the arena of God's direction in our daily living."
