Also check out Jim's other books as well. I have personally benefited tremendously from Truth or Territory A biblical approach to spiritual warfare.
My final plea to all who think God is speaking outside scripture and that there are people within the church we need to listen to because they are hearing from God. Please look to all the warnings that are there that tell of false teachers false prophets etc. Our dear Lord warned us.
I pray this review blessed you. I'll be wearing the pages out in this book and read over and over like Truth or Territory.
Reading those books a few years ago, after being out of YWAM for a while, it struck me how much they teach in those books isn't in the Bible.
To be honest, once you look at all the steps they teach you have to do to hear God's voice, and the principles you have to live by, and all the many many many ways, lots of them incredible vague and unclear, that God might speak to you, you can get the strong impression that not only is God's voice almost impossible to hear, but somehow also unreliable. It's a hamster wheel where we put in a lot of effort but got nowhere, or even less than nowhere if you look at where YWAM has been heading and the really awful churches and ministers they've been tying themselves to.
Osmon's book biblical breaks down and shreds a lot of what's going around about hearing the voice of God. Elijah's “still small voice” wasn't some kind of “voice” he heard inside himself. We don't have to tune in to God like we're radios. Gideon may have put out a fleece, but that's not a suggestion or command that we do the same. And there is a lot more in this book worth considering and knowing.
This is a subject that needs a large dose of biblical truth. I'm not even a cessationist, I see no biblical reason for denying that God can speak to a person today if he chooses, but far too much unbiblical nonsense about hearing the voice of God is being taught and uncritically accepted in the churches.
