An Audiobook Review

I have signed up for the Reviewers Program on ChristianAudio.com - quite enjoying the books I've downloaded for review, so here is my first review....

Dallas Willard - Hearing God

Five Stars (out of Five)

Encouraging, Clear, Thoughtful and Helpful

From the opening challenge to the end summary Willard's words draw the listener in and seek to cause us to respond. Willard has a way of putting his finger on the kind of questions many 'normal Christians' ask - highlighting our own sense of inadequacy and need for guidance and discernment.

'Hearing God' encourages us to have a Biblical, intelligent approach to our relationship with God and to learning to have a more relaxed and open attitude to our conversations with him. It inspires us to think in terms of 'walking with God' and listening as well as talking - of being Christian rather than just 'doing Christian things'. It's a view of transformation, of exciting possibilities, but offers sound and practical advice along with the hope that we will encounter God in a new new way.

The narration is clear, not too slow but not overly fast, a pleasure to listen to.
