I just finished Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God by Dallas Willard. What a blast!

I have read two of Willard’s other books The Renovation of the Heart and the very well-known The Divine Conspiracy. I just love reading Willard because of his ability to make complex ideas simple. He doesn’t use a lot of big words (which is quite unusual for a philosopher), and he sprinkles his writing with stories and quotes from a wide variety of sources, ranging from The Stanford Wives to Kierkegaard. All in all, he’s the kind of author whom you can imagine having a normal conversation with, which makes him the right guy to write a book about developing a conversational relationship with God.

His big point is that hearing God is not something that usually happens in big dramatic ways, but in the small still whisper and in the ordinary things of life.

Through listening to Willard’s book on prayer I was sure blessed and was inspired to finish reading all of his work. If you want to try out his stuff but don’t want to pay for it, Willard is even better as a speaker, so if you want to check out some of my favorite lectures by him, see the related link below!
