Being close to God means communicating with Him-telling Him what is on our hearts in prayer and hearing and understanding what he is saying to us. It is this second half of our conversation with God that is so important but that also can be so difficult. How do we hear his voice? How can we be sure that what we think we hear is not our own subconscious? What role does the Bible play? What if what God says to us is not clear?

The key, says best-selling author Dallas Willard, is to focus not so much on individual actions and decisions as on building our personal relationship with our creator. In this updated classic, originally published as In Search of Guidance, the author provides a rich, spiritual insight into how we can hear God's voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with Him in the work of His kingdom.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Belvis | 2/20/2014

    " A wonderful book that I could read again and again. So insightful and written by a man who so obviously loves God. Dallas Willard draws you in and makes you want to know God better. The DVD that accompanies the book is excellent! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles Dean | 2/18/2014

    " Willard is just so COMPREHENSIVE, almost to a fault - I have a hard time staying interested (which probably says more about my lack of intellectual prowess than Willard's writing). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shari | 1/28/2014

    " Best book all year! He has a very balanced view of being able to walk with God and listen for his voice to show us the way we should go. I think most Christians from any denomination can glean a closer walk with the Lord from this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 1/18/2014

    " An examination of what it means to hear from God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Eshleman | 1/16/2014

    " Foundational Truths expressed with a knack for clarity and the penetrating phrase. If you are looking for the magic formula to conjure up God giving you direction to your comfort, will or won't help you and will convict you. If, however, you seek an ever-deepening conversation with God as a part of humbling yourself before Him, Willard makes a competent and compassionate guide. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg | 1/14/2014

    " The most thoughtful and searching book I have read on hearing God's voice. A must read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/9/2014

    " I'm savoring this book in small morsels...learning step-by-step to listen to God more carefully. Stories and encouragements and insights are helpful, but a conversational relationship with God is very personal and unique. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 12/21/2013

    " Many good points, but slow reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elin | 12/6/2013

    " Dallas Willard is one of my favourite authors. Look forward to spend time with this book :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nichole Toms | 9/21/2013

    " This book had some good nuggets of truth in it, but it was definitely a slow read for me. I had a harder time with Dallas Willard's style of writing than I have with other books on the same subject. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Masessa | 9/11/2013

    " It makes sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joey | 7/14/2013

    " Amazing book on such a confusing subject. Willard provides the reader with very practical ways of how to quiet yourself and truly seek after the Lords voice. I look forward to re-reading this someday "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawne Davidson | 4/22/2013

    " This excellent book provides a solid theological foundation for understanding this aspect of being in relationship with God - that is prayer as a two-way conversation. It is very readable and I found it exceptionally helpful! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missy Lowrance | 2/5/2013

    " Truly one of the most insightful books I've read in years, this book addresses so many areas of confusion about the idea of hearing God. It was profound and freeing and exciting to read, and although it sounds cliche, it really did change my life and my thoughts on God's communication with us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Djidymus | 1/31/2013

    " Elegant way of exploring "Where or From Whom" did THAT arise in my head? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DaveR | 12/21/2012

    " A good, practical view about developing "spiritual ears" to hear and recognize God's voice and direction in our lives. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve | 10/24/2012

    " I love Dallas Willard on spiritual formation, but this book misses the mark. He strays too far away from the text and put too much weight on experience. Not his best work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryan Neuschwander | 10/3/2012

    " Sane, wise, and responsible reflections on hearing God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 7/27/2012

    " Excellent! I've had trouble wading through Willard's writings in the past, but this book was somehow much easier to digest. I read it all in one day (I was lazing around sick at home) and it was exactly the re-aligning message I needed at the time. So, I thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 3/23/2012

    " Clearly a seminal work on the subject of grace-though grace should not to be relegated to a subject only-rather a conversation God is having with us today! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bram | 2/11/2012

    " The best on this subject. Realistic, down to earth, very helpful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Kaess | 9/15/2011

    " This book along with John Eldridge's "Walking with God" have become the focus of my spiritual growth at this time in my life. Talking with and Hearing God have become core parts of my daily walk. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 5/5/2011

    " This is an interesting book, but a not written in an easy flowing manner. It felt like he was jumping around a lot, so I did too. I skimmed enough to call it good. I think I will try his book "The Divine Conspiracy", but if it's written in the same hodge podge manner, I'll skim it as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Summisse | 5/1/2011

    " this is one of my favorite books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy | 6/10/2010

    " you can hear the voice of God if you are listening "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 valerie | 3/21/2010

    " A great book about developing a conversational prayer life with God. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 6/17/2009

    " I learned that you can hear God easily when you are in relationship with Him as you live day to day. That takes one-on-one time, and just recognizing His hand in all things. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joey | 2/22/2009

    " Amazing book on such a confusing subject. Willard provides the reader with very practical ways of how to quiet yourself and truly seek after the Lords voice. I look forward to re-reading this someday "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg | 1/3/2009

    " The most thoughtful and searching book I have read on hearing God's voice. A must read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan | 7/7/2008

    " A great introduction to the theology of hearing from God. Realistic and practical, while avoiding the false hope of easy answers. "
