Editorial Reviews


"Roland Martin is a fresh and powerful voice on the scene. His insights on life, religion, culture and politics are rich. Don't miss him!" --Dr. Cornel West, Professor of Religion, Princeton University

"In these times common sense is not common. It takes a reaching inside to reinforce humanity against programmed society and culture. Roland Martin's latest book is a roadmap in some damn sure cloudy times. I've always dug his sharp insight and this book is guide we can keep close to us recognizing the God in us and not just join a shelf of other reads afterwards. Roland Martin is indeed a millennium visionary as well as a beacon clearing our spiritual vision through these modern day whippings of mass distraction, whether cultural, social or religious." --Chuck D, founder, Public Enemy

"If you're on the doorstep of your faith, struggling, in doubt or in pain, Listening to the Spirit Within will offer keys to the blessings God has for you. Roland Martin's wonderful spiritual guide demystifies the scriptures and makes them relevant to the challenges of our daily lives. You'll read this gift more than once." --Roy Johnson, AOL Black Voices

Roland has a good heart and message but he definately needs to get an editor. I suspect this book might have been self published with no pre-reading or editing from others. It was full of spelling errors (first paragraph of the book) and poorly written rambling that drew my attention away from the actual good-hearted content. I am certainly not an expert in these areas but most of the stuff jumped out at me. Perhaps I received an early release.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It provided lots of practical examples of biblical principles and how he's implemented in his life. What an encouragement to me and the many challenges I face on a daily. Highly recommended if you're trying to apply God's perspective in your daily life. The editing was very, very poor. Hopefully, it will be republished with corrections. When I need reassurance or inspiration, I will pick a topic which seems close to my situation and read it, then I am encouraged.
