Publisher's Summary

"Without a hint of exaggeration," says pastor and author Bill Hybels in this unabridged audio, "the ability to discern divine direction has saved me from a life of sure boredom and self-destruction. God's well-timed words have redirected my path, rescued me from temptation and re-energized me during some of my deepest moments of despair."

In The Power of a Whisper, a vision is cast for what life can look like when God’s followers choose to hear from heaven as they navigate life on earth. Whispers that arbitrate key decisions, nudges that rescue from dark nights of the soul, promptings that spur on growth, urgings that come by way of another person, inspiration that opens once-glazed-over eyes to the terrible plight people face in this world…. Through firsthand accounts spanning 57 years of life, more than 30 of which have been spent in the trenches of ministry, Hybels promotes passion in Christ-followers' hearts for being wide open to hearing from God - and for getting gutsier about doing exactly what he says to do.

    "Outstanding!!!"

    I just finished listening to this book, it is very insightful and will help anyone that is searching. It doesn't matter if you are a babe in Christ or a more mature leader in Christ. This information is focused, moving and if your not impacted, you best get on your knees and have a serious talk with God.

    "Helps to open the eyes of your heart!"

    The author compiled very important information- all bible based- in how important is to hear the whisper of God.
    He reminds us that God speaks to everyone of us if we are not listening is because the other noise is too loud.

    "Wow!! You gotta hear this"

    I had never listened to Bill Hybels before and this book just blew me away. So excellent, loved the instruction as well as the stories. Sometimes it is so great just to hear how God speaks to others. So often, it is the merest whisper, or a feeling of "oughtness", I ought to do that or this.

    I went for a long time in my adult life thinking God didn't speak to me. I knew He spoke, I knew He spoke to others, but I thought He didn't speak to me. Little by little, I began to realize He DID speak to me, ti was just that I often ignored His attempts at communication. When you do that, even by accident, the voice seems to get a little harder to hear.

    This book will help you tune in to God's voice and recognize that helpful and protective voice when He speaks to you.

    Don't pass it up!

    "Great book if you are looking to hear from God"

    I used this book and the study materials that are available with it to run a Bible study at home. I found it to be one of the most practical guide to understanding how to hear God's voice in your life. Myself and several members in our group are trying to put into practice the teachings that Bill Hybels talks about from the Bible We all are keeping your ears open and pointed toward God in our daily lives and hopefully that will lead two a deep Impact in the world around us.

    "Powerful, thought provoking book"

    If you're looking to deepen your walk and prayer life with God, this is a book worth reading several times. I know I intend to. Deeply spiritual and thoughtfully written, Hybels walks you through his own journey of learning to listen to God more closely and how it has impacted his life, lessons he's learned and he invites you to take the same journey.

    "God's Whispers are important"

    This book is a great encouragement, with real life scenarios that I can identify with. A reminder to listen out for what God is saying and proximity to Him. His voice has been a guide in my life's decisions for over 30 years. The fact that pastors also make mistakes and God intervenes with advice & wisdom helps knowing that God loves us, whoever we are.
