Item description for Listening to the God Who Speaks: Reflections on God's Guidance from Scripture and the Lives of God's People by Klaus Bockmuehl, Kathryn Yanni & James M. Houston...
In this call to listen to the God who speaks, Dr. Klaus Bockmuehl (formerly professor of theology at Regent College, Vancouver, BC) encourages the cultivation of a "listening heart" -- a day-by-day, obedient sensitivity to the voice of God. Tracing themes in divine guidance first through the Old and New Testaments, Dr. Bockmuehl then turns to the "living testimonies" of church history and a crucial doctrinal struggle rooted in the Reformation that has left its legacy in secular and religious ideology alike. Insightful and devotional, "Listening to the God Who Speaks" instructs and motivates readers for a life attentive to God's voice, liberated by a "new creativity and spontaneity that go beyond peraonsl piety to implementation of the Kingdom of God in all human affairs."

Klaus Bockmuehl wrote his book just before he left for heaven. That alone carries little weight except that he probably felt he had something important to say. Bockmuehl goes through both the Old and New Testaments to examine just what it means to hear from God.He separates the two concepts of hearing from God directly and merely reading the scriptures. Though they are complementary and may even be part of the same process, they are not identical. Many times God guides his people other than through scripture passages (but not contradictory to the scriptures).Bochmuehl shows that sometimes when the Bible is quoted as an authority, it is actually the person's own interpretation the biblical passage for which authority is claimed. Hence, the necessity of each one to hear from God for himself and to submit what he has heard to the community of believers. He cites many places in scripture where people heard from God not in words of what was then scripture but in words that only later became scripture. So, if God spoke directly to his people all through scripture, it is reasonable to suppose that God still speaks today, directly. The conflict is most often not between the scriptures and what we hear from God; it is often between what we hear and what some self-appointed human authority says is so.
