Description

Having addressed God’s silence in God on Mute, and then How to Pray in his previous bestseller, Pete Greig is back to bring wisdom and guidance to one of the most pressing and perplexing aspects of universal Christian experience–How to Hear God. He weaves together the evangelical emphasis upon hearing God in the Bible, and the charismatic commitment to hearing God in the prophetic, with the contemplative understanding of God's 'still, small voice' within.

Exploring the story of Christ’s playful, poignant conversation on the road to Emmaus, Pete draws deeply from the insights of a wide range of Christian traditions. We may have to wrestle with some theological and psychological difficulties to do with hearing God (Greig shares his own) but it is worth persevering. This book will do a solid job helping them listen for the voice of God in everyday life, by way of a broad range of spiritual traditions, while remaining alert to the loopier and more manipulative claims of some would-be channellers of the Almighty. Pete Grieg has done a masterful job of breaking down the areas of hearing the voice of the Lord and putting our faith into practice. Pete Greig is the Senior Pastor of Emmaus Rd church, and the bewildered founder of 24-7 Prayer, an international, inter-denominational movement of prayer, mission and justice operating in more than 100 countries.He weaves together the evangelical emphasis upon hearing God in the Bible, and the charismatic commitment to hearing God in the prophetic, with the contemplative understanding of God’s “still, small voice” within. The first section of the book explores God’s Word, exploring the ways that the Bible can speak to us, and the second half focuses on God’s Whisper, what God really sounds like today.

Centred on the story of the disciples who encountered Jesus on the road to Emmaus, Pete uses his characteristic accessible and practical style to unpack the many ways that God speaks to us today. He also launched The Prayer Course and his really helpful and insightful books on prayer, which really go together with this new book on hearing God, include How To Pray and God on Mute.Using the story of Jesus encountering two discouraged disciples on the Emmaus Road, Greig shows how God speaks in mealtimes, in nature, through his word in guided meditation, and good counsel from friends. It is about the ‘covert Christ’ drawing near and taking you on ‘a slow journey of deep discovery that will change your life’ (p. The Emmaus Road story of Jesus drawing alongside the two disciples is a great model for learning to hear God. Greig's main readership is likely to be young adults in the Charismatic Evangelical wing of the Church.

This is not just a book written in a charming style, but perhaps in the end a book that will help many change their lives and adjust themselves to hearing that "still small voice" of which the Bible speaks. Pete is an Ambassador for the NGO Tearfund, a visiting lecturer for St Mellitus Theological College and one of the founding conveners of the Wildfires festival. He heads up Emmaus Rd in Guildford with his wife Sammy, serves as Vice-President for the NGO Tearfund and was part of the senior leadership team at HTB in London for seven years.It really encourages the reader to get stuck in and experiment with ways to open up to God and notice him in your everyday life. The most important prayer of the Old Testament – the ‘Shema’ means ‘hear’ or ‘listen’ – begins with hearing God (Deut. This is a book to make your faith come alive by turning your ordinary, everyday prayers into a real, conversational relationship with the God who is speaking, more than you know.
