How to Hear God: A Simple Guide for Normal People

Following the success of his bestselling book HOW TO PRAY, Pete Greig turns his attention to one of the most pressing and perplexing questions of our time:
How to Hear God.


Nothing could possibly matter more than learning to discern the authentic voice of God, but few things in life are more susceptible to delusion, deception, and downright abuse. When life falls apart and we need God’s comfort; in moments of cultural turmoil when we need God’s clarity; facing formidable decisions when we need God’s guidance; desiring a deeper faith when we need God to say something, anything, to turn the monologue we call prayer into a genuine conversation.

Having addressed God’s silence in God on Mute, and then How to Pray, 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.

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. 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.

Blending the ancient wisdom of many different traditions with insights gleaned from twenty years of continual prayer, this is an essential resource – for new Christians, seasoned disciples, and entire churches, helping us to discern God’s word and his whisper in the wildness of our world today.
