Item description for The Art of Listening Prayer: Finding God's Voice Amidst Life's Noise by Seth Barnes...
This interactive devotional is for the person who isn't satisfied with a dry faith. If you're dying to hear God's voice, the good news is that you can! Jesus is the door, and He has opened Himself up to you.
A personal relationship with God. What does it really mean? If God loves His people, couldn't it be that He desires to speak one-on-one with us? If so, wouldn't our first priority be to learn how to hear from Him?
It's one of the most important questions of our lives. Yet many of us settle for a one-way, humdrum monologue, in which we do all the talking and give God no time to speak back.
This interactive devotional is for the person who isn't satisfied with a dry faith. If you're dying to hear God's voice, the good news is that you can!
Explore what it means to experience prayer that really is two-way. Using the Bible as a foundation, you can go way beyond theory and grow in the practice of listening prayer. This devotional will help you do it.

The Art of Listening Prayer...A Good Practical Tool Feb 17, 2005
It is exciting to think of what the church could accomplish if we truly spent time not only listening for God's voice in our daily lives, but actually doing what He asks of us!!! The Art of Listening Prayer is an excellent beginning tool for Christians who are interested in really learning how to hear God's voice. The book provides practical methods for focusing prayer time so that personal prayer time becomes more than simply a time of petitioning God for a list of needs and wants. For a well-rounded practical and scripturally based understanding of hearing God's voice, the interested reader would be well-advised to use The Art of Listening Prayer in conjunction with Blackaby's Experiencing God workbook.
Very helpful Feb 12, 2005
Seth's book is a good reminder that God can speak to us through any method He chooses, including prayer, if only we'll be quiet for a moment and listen. This is a fact that many people believe intuitively -- some of you are nodding right now -- and yet we all can get going in our prayers and then stop after undburdening ourselves, without ever waiting to see if God actually wants to say something back. We quit right when it gets to the good part!
Naturally there will be critics who claim Seth is trying to replace the Bible with these exercises. Not at all. He acknowledges that God chooses to speak through the Word most of all. And he states emphatically that what we think God is saying to us must stand up to the light of scripture. He also makes the point, both theoretically and with workbook exercises, that we should not fear an active, dynamic relationship with the God of the universe, a God who desperately wants to be in fellowship with each one of us. Honest, 2-way dialog is important to any relationship, Seth points out; our relationship with God is no different. This book is a good way to get started.
Right questions, wrong answers. Feb 11, 2005
There is a long line of men and women who have "found the answer." Seth's book asks good questions but it fails to answer them. It seems Listening Prayer is seen as an Art because it does not want to be weighed down by the hard, slow, tedious (but fruitful) task of accessing God directly through Scripture. And if listening to God is an art, how does Seth's book not commit the dangerous error of regarding the process of interpreting how God speaks and what he says to be the same as appreciating art - that the meaning is in the mind of the one viewing the object? Rather than answering this question, Seth's book seems to commit the same fatal error modernity has made with our culture: it neuters meaning by individualizing it, and makes it relative to each person and their experience of it. And if this is true, how can it be of good use for the church?
This book will bless you Big Time! Jan 6, 2005
I have just got a copy of this most wonderful and much needed book. " The Art of Listening Prayer", by Seth Barnes. This is a must read, for anyone who is really serious about finding answers to what God Almighty wants you to know, as you line up with your Holy Bible. This author shows you how to really listen and perhaps you too will hear from the Lord. I suggest in the strongest terms possible to please read this book, it is life changing.

An essential primer for learning to converse with God Dec 7, 2004
Since the fall, God's passion has been to restore the personal relationship with His ultimate creation, man (and woman). Like all good relationships, they require good communication. So many Christians have treated prayer as a monologue, but many have discovered that God desires to speak to us as well, through the scriptures, experience, events, through our hearts and minds. Seth Barnes has discovered this secret in his own life and shares his story(s) in this essential primer on The Art of Listening prayer. For those Christians who struggle with the idea that they can actually converse with the creater of the universe, this book is for you.
