Publisher's Summary

Translating God serves as an inspirational guide book that puts God's great love back into prophetic ministry as a primary goal full of real life stories that articulate the culture of love behind God's heart for the prophetic.

So much of the prophetic ministry is esoteric and a free-for-all in which people throw down the God card on anything they feel, but this book brings balance without taking away the desire to see the powerful nature of God displayed. On top of that, it's biblically based and is supported by scripture throughout each story, driving home the book's message of activating the ability to hear God's voice for each listener.

Through a thought-provoking prophetic ministry philosophy and Shawn's glorious successes and very real failures, you will be inspired and equipped to:

  • Learn how to hear God for yourself and others
  • Grow through simple focused steps
  • Take great risks
  • Stay accountable
  • Love people well
  • Grow in intimacy with the Lord

As an internationally known prophetic voice who has ministered to thousands - from political leaders to those on the streets - Shawn shares everything he has learned about the prophetic in a way that is totally unique and refreshing. Shawn aims for the higher goal of loving people relationally, not just pursuing the gift or information, and he activates you to do the same.

Start to reshape the world around you with God's love today.

God’s heart is revealed in the prophetic

In Translating God, Shawn will take you through the fact that the prophetic operates by love, just like faith does, because it requires faith or risk to share God’s heart with others. You’ll also learn that God is not only speaking to Christians, but rather to everyone, and Christians can help bring others into a closer relationship with God as we’re supposed to be His friends and understand His heart for humanity.

I’ve read the book and listened to the Audiobook, and will do the exercises form the workbook because we all need to practice sharing God’s heart with many others who are desperate to know that He’s speaking to them (which He has already done in many instances).

BTW, you’ll learn that this is a walk we must all take so we don’t reject the prophetic altogether because we will all make mistakes translating His heart at times, but that means we’re growing and there’s room for humility in the process of helping others know that He hears them and is speaking to them.

Love covers a multitude of sins. This will challenge your theology but you’ll end up finding it it’s all biblical after all.

I’ve seen Shawn minister and he does it with precision yet with humility and love because he wants to reveal to those present God’s heart and teach a whole generation how to go about doing the same.

Thank you Shawn for challenging us to walk in a closer friendship with the Lord.

Informative

This book provides a deeper understanding of God's wonderful gifts. I would have never believed that practice and relationship building were so much a part of the process. There are some books that I listen to again for a refreshing. This book will be added to the list!

One of the Most Powerful Books I've Read

This book is much like our faith, simple yet profound. Shawn has done an excellent job of taking the weird out of the prophetic and placing the emphasis back on hearing the voice of God. There is so much to say about this book, but i will not be the one to say it. I will be too busy reading through it again.

prophetic gift

a good intro for anyone who feels they have the prophetic gift. Shawn shares many real life stories that encourages us to keep practicing and move in step with God - not ahead of Him.

I especially loved the end where Shawn brings up about tracking the prophetic and about healthy relationships as a background to healthy prophecy. And always being open to receive correction. Loved it all!

Easy to listen to this excellent book.

I really recommend this book. It is a wonderful book on how to hear God’s voice and how to put Gods words into practice. Encouraging words for those who prophesy and for Those who would like too.

Practical

Enjoy this book, enjoyable very practical. Not a hocus pocus tell you what you should do and leave no examples on how to grow. No, Shawn shares not just examples of translating but invites you into the heart of God. And to see and share how he see loves and values his creation. Enjoy all his books I have read.

was good

some good information. transparent and honest. teachest authenticity and how to handle relational situations between "highly esteemed prophetic people" when there prophecies are not always accurate. i would of liked some more meat. over all it was a good book and covered the basics that in order to translate God it must be done from a relationship of love from God.
