Hearing God in Conversation

From the back of the book:
     Christianity is a relationship with Bod, how many of us would say we have a strong, meaningful connection with him?  After all, it's widely accepted that the foundation of any good relationship is communication-and conversation with God often seems to be one-sided at best.  We may long to hear his voice, but does God still talk to us today? Should we even expect Him to?

From the Publisher

Christians are comfortable saying that Christianity is about a relationship with God. Yet many might also say that they sense  a lacking meaningful relationship with God in their own lives.  What people (Christians) seem to miss is that in order to have a meaningful relationship, one must communicate with the other person.    After all, the foundation of  a good relationship is communication —but  do we actually listen  to hear God?   

Hearing God in Conversation offers simple, step-by-step lessons on how to hear God. Williamson begins with Scripture meditation. He then expands the practice of listening for that voice everywhere—in the checkout line, on the job, in a movie theater, and even in silence. From there, he demonstrates how to hear God's guidance when making any decision. By the end, readers' eyes and ears will be opened to the limitless methods through which God speaks.

My thoughts:
I agree that a relationship with God is very important, and yes we do need to pray, read the Bible in order to hear what God has for us. I believe that most people today are so used to an instant society that they do not take the time to listen and do not recognize that God is speaking to them.  Do I believe that God will speak audibly to me?  Probably not, I believe that God speaks through scripture, through praying and through circumstances.

But for those seeking ways to hear God and form a relationship with Him, this may be a good start.
