Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

No-nonsense, best-selling author and Bible teacher Meyer explores the various modes God uses to communicate with his listening followers in this book geared for charismatic Christians. While most Christians would agree that the primary vehicle God utilizes to speak to believers is the Bible, Meyer adds several others that may raise eyebrows among conservative evangelicals. She asserts that devout Christians can and do hear from God via dreams, visions, an audible voice and what Meyer calls an "inner witness" that parallels the still, small voice mentioned in Scripture. She aims to encourage Christians to listen well, as she believes that very few followers of Christ ever fulfill God's perfect plan because they haven't perceived God's directives for their lives. Detailing various obstacles to hearing from God, Meyer candidly shares her own battles with busyness before expounding upon the dangers of rote religious activity, stubborn hard-heartedness, worldly viewpoints, unforgiveness and legalism. Finally, she offers the cure for these ills: the grace of God that brings blessed freedom and restoration. Meyer's trademark plainspoken style carries through here; as a spirit-filled spokesperson for God, she writes her words in the same style she would speak them. Some Christians may wonder about her tendency toward "verse claiming"-the many instances where she thinks God is speaking directly to her through a message or lesson given to some biblical character. However, fans of Meyer's previous works will likely be delighted with this newest offering, and its back-to-basics approach will ensure new fans as well.

Format: Hardcover
In the introduction to this book (one of the top-ten best selling religious books of 2003), author Joyce Meyer says, "Learning to hear from God and be led by the Holy Spirit is very exciting. God wants to speak to us about the plan He has for our lives. His plan is a good plan, but we are in danger of missing it if we don't learn how to listen to and obey God's voice." (Page vii). This book is Meyer's way of helping the reader learn how to do both.

In describing ways of listening to God, Meyer lists many ways in which God speaks to us. Many are ways that we might think of readily, such as through the Bible and prayer. But she has a much longer list of ways that God makes God's desires known to us, from dreams and visions to the wise counsel of others, and does not fail to mention the world around us as a communicator of God's will.

Obedience is the visible sign that we hear, love and trust God, and Meyer has a number of insights for Christians who are long on facts but short on respecting what God requires. In fact, it is in this area that Meyer's work shines. For example, there is an excellent section on forgiveness. She says, "A woman once share with me that she asked God to give her direction concerning what God wanted her to do. He clearly put in her heart that He wanted her to forgive her sister of an offence.... Over a period of two years, every time she asked for guidance...He gently reminded her, `I want you to forgive your sister.' Finally, she realized that she would never grow spiritually if she didn't do the last thing God had told her to do." (Page 15). The concept of being disciplined in reading the Word and in prayer, as well as in putting what we hear into practice, is what the book is all about.

I reviewed the audio version for MyShelf.Com.

Meyer combines points from her sermons. Her goal is to show Christians how to hear from God, what to expect, and the blessings in so. She talks about hearing from God in various ways, including one's thoughts, the words of others, and even dreams, giving various examples throughout the book.

Anyone looking to be a better person in their walk with God should pick up all Joyce Myer's books. Meyer speaks to men and woman in all walks of life. I once heard Queen Latifia--of music and movie fame--mention on TV that she was reading one of Meyer's books for personal improvement. How cool is that!
The author narrates the audio version. Although not as dramatic as in her meetings, she still gets all her points across.

Format: Hardcover
Anyone who knows Joyce Meyers knows what an excellent teacher she is and this book holds true to that.This is a easy to read book with a lot of information on different ways to hear Gods voice. I would recommend it to everyone no matter what denomination you are. Its not about denomination anyway, its about knowing God. We all need a personal relationship with the Lord and to know His voice.

Format: Audio CD
Joyce Meyer is awesome as always. I started reading her books over 2 years ago when I was having trouble with panic attacks. The first book I read of Meyer was "Be Anxious For Nothing." What makes her books so good is that she talks about her own past experiences and how she overcame sexual abuse by her father when she was growing up. Everything Joyce talks about in her books; she backs up with the word of God found in the Holy Bible. What is so convenient is being able to listen to the book when you're getting ready for work or when you're in the car driving. This book teaches you about studying the Bible and ultimately knowing the word of God so that when God is speaking to you; you will be able to discern his voice.

Format: Hardcover
You refer to this book as "Mindless Dribble." You are certainly entitled to your opinion. However, I feel that the grounds on which you based your opinion are flawed.

Ms. Meyer never tells one to look anywhere other than the "Word" to find God. In this book she simply shows us what we may be missing in our daily communication with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Her writing is all biblically based. I agree that we should all live by the Word. However, do you not pray? Do you not "Talk" to God? I know I do. Ms. Meyer simply shows how we may be failing to hear his answers.

this book has been immensely helpful in my daily life.

Please give it another read.

Format: Hardcover
This book was excellent and a must read for all Christians. Most pastors and churches do not teach of the Holy Spirit and do not tell you that He is desperately needed in your life. That is why so many people come to christianity and fall right back in their old life. They don't lead Spirit-led lives. And not only that, they don't recognize the spirit and all the different ways God talks to you. There are so MANY different ways God gets His message across to you. And Joyce Meyers did an excellent job of stating them. This is for those who love Jesus and don't understand why their life is not going how they want. Jesus will give you power through the Holy Spirit.

Format: Paperback
This was one of the most powerful books I have ever read. Many of us refer to that "little voice" inside but even when we hear it, it can be confusing to recognize - Was that really God? Or is that me? How do I know? Joyce walks you through a myriad of ways that God speaks to his people. And she duly backs up each area with scripture. This is an eye opening and extremely powerful workbook for new and seasoned believers alike. I highly recommend it for anyone desiring to walk closer with God.
