Disturbed by what he sees as the rise of subjectivism in evangelical Christianity, Gilley offers this work as a sharp retort to popular vocabulary of “calling,” “inner peace,” and “holy hunches.” Gilley surveys scripture to build a case for the silencing of personal revelations, emphasizing freedom, responsibility, and wisdom in decision-making rather than seeking a word from God. Gilley does well in correcting the imbalance in contemporary evangelicalism, but goes to the other extreme in describe the complete silence of God outside of scripture and natural revelation. While correct to warn the church about the dangers of subjectivism, Gilley’s scholarship (biblical and historical) leaves much to be desires. D
