You're going to be amazed by the stories he recounts... Bill Cahusac is the real deal.
Pete Greig, 24-7 Prayer

A thundering from the skies? Or an inner knowing, a quiet certainty? Perhaps a verse seems to jump out as we’re reading the Bible. Is it too much to secretly hope for an audible whisper? What is ‘God’s voice’ actually like? And can we hope to ‘hear’ him today?

Yes, we can, argues Bill Cahusac, and not only in church. We can encounter him in the most ordinary circumstances – in a supermarket queue, a football match or walking on the downs. This beautiful book explores, in the simplest and most practical of ways, the question of how we can get to know and to recognize God’s voice, and his presence in the most humble and ordinary of circumstances.

Format: Paperback

How do I know if God is speaking to me? What do Christians mean when they talk about visions and pictures from God? Is prophecy is my spiritual gift? What should we expect when listening to God?

The God of the Bible is a God who speaks, who spoke the world itself into being; his Word is powerful and it will accomplish what he sends it to do. Our God promises to speak to us, to be found by us when we seek him with all our heart. He promises that the old will dream dreams and the young will see visions.

But how? What is ‘God’s voice’ actually like? Can we really hope to ‘hear’ him today?

Yes, we can, argues Bill Cahusac, pastor of Emmaus Road church in Guildford, and not only in church. Whether that is a supermarket queue, a football match or out walking on the Downs, the God of the Bible loves to communicate with us.

This beautiful book explores, in the simplest and most practical of ways, some of the important and difficult questions surrounding prophecy and interpretation. Vulnerable, funny, and relatable, Bill takes us on a journey of his experience, recounting stories and examples which have taught him how to recognize God’s word. Hearing that gentle whisper, he says, comes from spending time with God in his word and in worship.
