How to Hear God: A Simple Guide for Normal People
About this deal
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. I discovered, rather late in my walk with God, tools like The Examen and Lectio Divina, developed by early church fathers for growing in our faith. 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. Pete never fails to make my soul tremble with the good news of God's presence and guidance and invitation to pray.
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. It is also a kind of model for the Christian life, which is really all about walking with Jesus along the way.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.
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.
