Item description for Listening to Love: Responding to the Startling Voice of God by Janice Meyers & Jan Meyers...

Instead of an angry, disappointed, or demanding God, this book affirms that God's desire is for people to lean in, listen, and wrestle with him so that they may respond with their whole hearts, without fear, and only then can they understand that the voice asking difficult things of them is also infinitely good, trustworthy, and loving. Original.

Publishers Description
Love Is Calling. How Will You Answer?
One of our greatest desires is to know we are loved by our Creator. Yet the depth of our apprehension is often equally strong: "If I listen," we wonder," what will God say? If I open myself up to blessings, what will God require in return? "As we trace this line of thinking, the God of all goodness becomes, in our minds, the God of our worst fears.
Embrace a Love That's Worth the Risk.
God is far greater than our most expectant dreams. While he does often ask everything "of "us, he actually wants everything "for" us. He doesn't want blind loyalty or bored religious compliance; he longs for nothing less than our entire passionate self-something most of us have yet to glimpse. God's desire is that people lean in, listen, and wrestle with him so that they can respond to him without fear.
Can this God be trusted? Absolutely. Will the journey be easy? Not a chance. But once you learn to listen to love, you'll find that there's only one way you can adore this unmanageable, unpredictable, wild, and unruly God: "with your whole heart."

Reviews - What do customers think about Listening to Love: Responding to the Startling Voice of God?

Obediance Redifined  Dec 24, 2004
Jan explains, describes, and personifies a different sense of obeidance than I have read anywhere. After reading her book I not only have a better sense of what obeidance looks like I am finding myself listening and "leaning in" to Him better. It is one thing to read a book that helps you understand something like obediance but it it is another thing to read one that pulls out of your heart better desires. Jan's writing is captivating and comfortably compelling.
Coffee wih Jan  Nov 19, 2004
Jan must have been reading my journal. Every day, I eagerly awaited time in her book, or as I called it, "Coffee with Jan." She seemingly knew my dilemma before I did. I was stuck trying to hear from God. I was fruitlessly trying to live with more passion. I wanted more of God's goodness, but the old places that I had found it were trickling it out in diminishing amounts. Jan eloquently drew me back to the heart of the story. She incorporated humorous and painfully true stories of Jesus moving through lives. In profound ways, Jan talks of how easy it is for us to go to completely good, holy things rather than to Jesus. How? Because we begin to make God in the image of those good things rather than allow him to be as big and mysterious as he truly is. I understood through the scripture references, music and movie references and the incorporation of the landscape scenes from the American west. Jan was also a close friend of Brent Curtis (co-author of The Sacred Romance), a man I have respected and loved from afar. Thank you, Jan, for telling about and giving me memories of a truly good and honorable man. And for helping me stand under the weight and beauty of Jesus, who can be both known intimately but not fully known. This one is right up there with Wild at Heart for me in number of jaw-dropping revelations.
An excellent read  Nov 8, 2004
I was familiar with Jan Meyers' writing through my wife (who was impacted by Jan's other book 'The Allure of Hope'). I hoped that Listening to Love would also be thought provoking reading (it is for men and women), but I had no idea how important the book would be for me personally. This book has helped me with the tension I have felt for a very long time as a Christian, and has helped me to not be apologetic for that tension. The tension for me has been this: I want more freedom as a Christian, but I don't want to lose sight of what my freedom is all about. I want to fight for good things, but I know at some point I must hand over the outcome to God. My favorite chapter was "Listening to Reality - Losing our Religion" - it revealed how we all can make religions out of anything, even very precious, good things, instead of worshipping Jesus himself. I also appreciated the chapter "Recognizing His Touch - Relinquishing our Ideas about Healing" - full of examples of how God's beauty shows up in many situations that we, in our limited sight, would say are "unhealed." Take your time with this book. It will challenge you, and give you rest, even as you battle.
