The prophetic movements in church history and in contemporary life are fed by two mighty streams: the prophet, whose revelation is primarily verbal, and the seer, whose revelation is more visionary in nature. While the role of the prophet is familiar, less is known about the seer dimension. To many people, these visionary prophets remain mysterious, otherworldly, and even strange.
Knowledge dispels misunderstanding. Join author Jim W. Goll on an exciting and insightful journey into this lesser-known dimension - the visionary world of the seer. You will discover the prophetic power of dreams, visions, and life under the open heavens.
How does visionary revelation "happen?" Can it be trusted? Where does it fit into the life of the church today? Can any believer become a seer, or is this a prophetic dimension reserved for the specially-gifted? The Seer answers these questions and will move your heart and stir up your hunger for intimacy with God, because The Seer's goal is to reveal the man Christ Jesus!

A great reflection on the prophetic, both in scripture & lived experience.
As a predominantly conservative evangelical who has had his eyes opened to the glory of God, I've really appreciated this book.
It really does explain well how the prophetic is part of the everyday experience of believers in Scripture. It us interwoven throughout and is part of living for God through Christ.
I'm with Jim for over 90% of the book. I feel he tries to pin down and categorise experiences of the work of the Spirit too much. There a little bit bordering on the weird about 1/3 through that isn't really based on Scripture. I wouldn't say it's heretical, just not really based on Scripture. If you feel able to gloss over that stuff, Ive found the rest of it has really helped me get to grips with how Jesus has been speaking to me in the last few months.
A useful insight into worship and deepening your relationship with God.. The speaker could be lighter in voice.
This book opens up the eyes of your heart so you can discern the prophetic God placed in you when He created you. It unlocks your hunger abs desire to pursue the supernatural. Go for it ... listen it or read it ... you will be amazed
