Seeing that my blogging is almost nonexistent these days, I don’t know if this will be read by anyone. Either way, I was talking with several pastor friends and was noticing that the idea of ‘hearing the voice of God’ was a common confusion among their members and a common question in pastoral counselling. I’ve written about one person who’s peddling the whole “you can (and should) hear God’s voice as a regular part of your Christian experience” idea, and on the weekend I picked up 3 books (at a thrift shop) that are pretty popular treatments of the issue.
I’d like to find some more of the popular books on “hearing God’s voice” because I’d like to make this a theological project for the next while (not that I have any promises to make regarding how fast I’ll be doing any writing and whatnot). Either way, this is an issue that is all over the place and few people that I’m aware of are producing solid, biblical refutations of this idea (in its various manifestations).
If any of my readers could refer any books on the subject, I’d be quite thankful.
What have you been told to read on this issue? What books have been recommended to you regarding “hearing God’s voice”?
Until Next Time,
