If you are seeking a deeper walk with God, being able to distinguish God’s voice amidst in all others voices clamoring for your attention is essential.

If you are a Bible Study Leader, Sunday School Teacher, Small Group Leader, or if you want to engage in a personal, individual study that gives clear, concise teaching on this topic, Charles Stanleys’ Listening to God: Life Principles Study Series is an excellent choice.

As the author states, "Listening To God is the most important thing you can do for your eternal future."

This book is a practical 10-lesson guide suitable for personal or small group study. It includes a short introduction about "Preparing to Hear from God", open-ended discussion questions throughout the text, some scriptural references, and some uplifting thoughts based on the author's experience.

The book is of limited value if you reading it cover-to-cover in one sitting and are not willing to
How does God speak to His followers? Most of us do not hear an audible voice, but if we listen, we can still hear His voice. Charles Stanley says, "There are three main ways God speaks to us today: through His Word, through His Holy Spirit, and through other believers in Christ Jesus. The person who desires to hear from God and wants to put himself into the best position to hear from God will pursue His message through these three methods." The book is a 10-lesson study covering the following to ...more

This is a 10 part study that begins with a instruction on preparing to hear God, establishing how God speaks, and a why God wants to be heard (Lessons 1-5) and moves on to some of the more challenging aspects of listening to God such as ways God's gets our attention, distinguishing between the voice of God and the voice of the enemy, and instruction for continuing in purposeful attention to God. Generally, it was a well-written book, suitable for most readers.

I hosted a study on this book with a small group of ladies, and it was quite excellent. If you are the type to look for a practical approach to how to do what god wants, you will love this book. It is methodical, and very practical, leaving room for individuals to be individual in thier walk with God and yet does not hold back on some of the tough spots that we would rather not hear. An excellent read for a group, or individual, I highly recommend it.
I read this book over several weeks as a guide to my morning devotionals. I found Dr. Stanley's style very conversational and easy to read. In many cases the material presented wasn't new to me but served as a reminder of Biblical basics I need to remember. I particularly liked the last part, where he outlines the steps in meditating with God.

I enjoy Charles Stanely's study books. This one was especially helpful since I have always had difficulty listening to God and hearing His voice. Stanely goes through things to do to be an "active" listener. Anything to enhance your relationship with God is a good thing and this book does that.
A wonderfully succinct guide to recognizing when God is speaking to us and how to listen. Dr. Stanley explains all the ways God can speak to His people and warns of the two ways He does not communicate. At 128 pages, it holds the readers attention and contains much helpful information.

This was a really insightful and helpful book. Pastor Stanley is a great teacher and gets to the heart of the matter in clear language without being overly theological and theoretical.

I will definitely come to this book again.
