It's not often that we get to see a prophetic gift mature in front of our own eyes.
I am so thankful for Shawn Bolz and his approach to life and the nature of God. Our people here at Bethel Church, Redding, have been deeply impacted over the years by what Shawn carries. Every time he visits our church, we experience promotion and increase. Translating God is a must-read for anyone interested in learning how God sees people and how he interacts and engages with us. It will take you to another level.

THIS BOOK SHOULD HAVE ANOTHER TITLE:
"Translating God" is a fancy title. However ... "Digesting Prophetic Love" should be a more appropriated title for this book.
I've never read a book talking so much about love and the prophetic like I've seen in this book. I won't give you any spoilers on the book, but it really changed my point of view on how I should deliver my prophecies to people. For many times while reading it, I got stuck at some phrases. Thinking that Love is the ultimate Power to be unleashed on the last days. Without Love, there's no power. Thanks Shawn
THIS BOOK TEACHES YOU HOW TO USE THE PROPHETIC GIFTS (IN CASE YOU HAVE IT)
Everybody can prophesy and I like the way this book encourages everyone to listen to God and hear His voice and the prophetic. This book is indeed for everyone. If you don't have the call to be a prophet but you still want to move in words of knowledge, read this book, it's going to help you.If you have the call to be a prophet, listen .. this book is A MUST READ.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BOOK:
I went to the grocery to get some coffee samples and pumpkin cake samples (I'm coming through this season in my life that I'm broke and I have no money. I'm asking and praying to GOD for a breakthrough in my finances). I went there two times. Then I went to the car to take some notations from couple things I've heard from God during my trip to the grocery. While I was taking the notes ... I got hungry again and thought of going back to the grocery to take even more samples. (Corn syrup perhaps? I don't know ...)
When I went there, I placed this book on the counter and a guy spoke this on my ears: "WOW, This book has a nice cover.It has a nice title too". I then shared with him about the book. In the middle of the conversation, The Holy Spirit spoke to me.He said, Give this book to this man. Give this book to this man now. You are going to be responsible for a revolution.
Then I told the man: Listen, I bought this book to give to a friend of mine as a present, now this weekend. I thought it wouldn't hurt to read his book till Saturday and that's why I have it on my hands now on Wednesday (it had happened on a Wednesday). I started reading the book Tuesday evening around 11 p.m and now is 12 p.m and I'm already on the half of the book. But God just spoke to me and He's telling me to give this book to you.
The guy goes like:
"WOW !!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS? ?!!?!?"
I said: HECK YEAH MAN! Take it ! It's yours now!!
He goes like:
"Young man! I'm a local pastor in this region and just now I started to launch a church with the direction of the Holy Spirit. I'm craving revival and the supernatural and I have been praying to God for something new. This book now is pretty handy! Thank you so much!!"
WOW !!! I GOT SUPER EXCITED !!
I didn't even know that that guy was a pastor or anything like that!!
My suggestion ?
Don't only buy this book and read it. Practice what you read. Fast. Pray and go to the grocery and move in the Spirit!!!
Blessings yall !! :)
*** UPDATE 09.08.2017 ***
I bought several copies of this book and gave it to many people after this experience. I also have a blog where I share my daily prophetic experiences. Feel free to visit it at anytime. It's called Limazone Dot Com (Amazon doesn't let me write the link so just feel free to google it)
*** UPDATE 11.02.17 ***
On the day I had this experience, God told me things that would happen with me regarding my future and finances. Since that time, I payed off over 10 thousand dollars debt and bought a new car. Things are turning around. I'm writing this to encourage you! To remind you that GOD is still the same! He will BLESS YOU TOO!

In reading this, I felt that the author truly cared for people and had no hidden agenda, he does not "head-hunt" or focus on his successes, but truly rejoices in what God does in people's lives. As far as I can tell, he never uses his "prophetic gift" to pressurize anyone, their dignity and freedom is respected. The main takeaway for me is to challenge motivation for ministry. It is a book I must return to and finish.
While I found the podcast series really interesting and inspiring, the book wasn’t quite the same.
Bolz does his best to try and communicate the message that hearing from God and speaking on his behalf is something we can all do, but his personal examples left me feeling more deflated than inspired (that could be just me).
I think this book is best suited for those who already have some experience in the prophetic and need a bit more refining.
I first saw Shawn Bolz on John Paul Jackson's Dreams and Mysteries. This book was then a recommended read on my kindle so I bought it.
A book written with love and honesty, exceptional read for all not just those interested in the prophetic.
Would thoroughly recommend.
