Publisher's Summary

Follow one man’s journey of learning to hear the voice of God. By putting words to the things God has shown him through some amazing experiences, John Eldredge helps listeners shed light on the miraculous truths that God is showing them right now. 

Our deepest need is to live in conversation with God. To hear his voice. To follow him intimately. This is the single most life-changing habit that a human being can adopt, because it brings us back to the source of life. Yet most Christians have never been taught how to have a conversation with the Creator. 

In this revised and updated edition of his classic Walking with God, John Eldredge opens his personal journals to tell a year’s worth of stories about walking and talking with the Lord. 

Some of John’s stories will help listeners recall lessons they didn’t know had been forgotten, some will open up new horizons, but they will all help listeners tell and interpret their own story: the story of their intimate walk with God.

A reassuring look at life's daily struggles

This book is uplifting because it slices life and its challenges into smaller, more digestible bits and offers reassurance that God is in every nugget of our daily living. If we could just look at the SMALL picture, and find God's face in the details, life can much more manageable, productive and joyful.

Great book for the over-worked Christian

The first third of this book changed my walk with Christ. The idea that the Lord wants me to feel joy was life-changing for me. His yoke is light and yet, before reading this book, I felt I served him best by running myself to the ground, living on five hours of sleep and feeling inadequate for not doing more. My common mantra now is "You can't take my joy, Devil." Definitely a recommended read for folks who overdrive themselves.

Hit the mark

Wow, John show us by using one year of his life experiences how God wants and desires an intimate relationship with us. He backs up his thoughts with scripture and by looking at the character and nature of God, and using that to help tell us the truth about our purpose in life. This was my first book by John that I have read, and now, I will be going through all of his books!

Challenging book

I found this book very challenging -- which is what I expect and want from a John Eldredge book. I can't say I'm totally swayed to this way of thinking (that is, I guess, mystically or something), but I definitely feel that he has given me something to think about. I'm less convinced about "spiritual warfare", and what he calls "agreements" (negative ways of thinking that people are tricked into by the "enemy"), though I see some truth in that. I guess more importantly, he has given me something to discuss with the one I call "Lord", and has given me some tools to do that with.

Since I have heard criticism of Eldredge that he plays loose with scripture, I was pleased to find liberal quotations that seem very much in context. Some go beyond what I would interpret, but in some cases, I found my self saying "yeah, that makes sense."

I would recommend this book only to those that feel they can really carefully determine what if anything they should apply to their life. It is not a "first" book for a believer, and especially not for an unbeliever. In fact, it's not even a 2nd or 3rd book, I think. But, for someone looking to go deeper into the spirituality of following the way of Jesus, this is one way to start. There's a lot of classics out there that one could go to as well -- but if you like hunting, fishing, rock climbing, etc., this may be your best bet.

So True

John has a way with communicating to me things I know but really never focused on before. Yes God does talk to me, but He really, really wants me to hear what He is saying to me. Great book from a really good teacher.

A Mega Shift in Relating to God

John shares his life experiences in learning to converse with God. He provoked a mega shift in my understanding how to walk in intimacy with God. Prayer is out of the closet and into John's real life experiences. He takes the risk of transparency in all things...personal, family, spiritual and even spiritual warfare. And, he models how to engage God conversationally...literally, doing it...the asking and the listening. This read can be a life-changer. It is for me.

WOW

Yes I know this is a long book but you will be surprised at just how quick you will read it before you know it it's over. It is one of thee best book I have read in a very long time!!! Ok there are a few others that where almost this good but they currently where not this long so the enjoyment did not last as long! Add that to the message and then put it in to practice or for some of us re put it into practice and you do have the best book I have read in quite some time!!! Sorry I guess I just can not say enough good things about this book, I know not every one is going to agree with everything that is in it but I truly think it is a great help book. I do have to give you a worming though...DO NOT READ THIS IF you have some issues you are avoiding and want to keep avoiding because this book makes it really hard to keep avoiding them!!! OWCH!!!!!

Another life changing book by John Eldredge

truly honest and insightful book.

This book really gave me an idea into what it looks like for someone to be listening and talking with God. I know it might a bit more specific and personal to John but it gives real honest pointers on the struggles and the ups of learning to do so in your own walk. thanks John

Excellent, thought provoking and challenging

I highly recommend this book, especially if you have been brought up in a Christian home, life is a bit dull and you want to experience God. John Eldredge is writing an honest journal of his walk with God. I have taken on board many of his suggestions; this book has taught me listening to God's voice in every day life, asking him for more guidance and hearing him talk to me. It has been amazing and deeply challenged me.

Walking...

As ever, John Eldredge delivers a powerful message in his easy to digest style.

Eldredge has the ability to take deeply powerful spiritual meat and serve it up like veal cooked in milk.

As a reader that increasingly struggles to concentrate to read, or indeed listen to much more than ten minute bursts, his musical rendering of his work held my focus for over an hour at a time six days running.

I'd give six stars if I could.

A walk with the authors personal story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I struggled through this book as it seem to be the authors diary which at times was very simple. Choice language at points "Jeese frickin louise"! Guess that's an Americanism?
Other times it was very flippant in how the author spoke to God. eg. I asked God what to do and he said this! Did the author use discernment in the replies or just the first thing that came into his head?

What was one of the most memorable moments of Walking with God?

Good ending overall.

Would you listen to another book narrated by John Eldredge?

No

Could you see Walking with God being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

no
