"Without a hint of exaggeration," says pastor and author Bill Hybels in this unabridged audio, "the ability to discern divine direction has saved me from a life of sure boredom and self-destruction. God's well-timed words have redirected my path, rescued me from temptation and re-energized me during some of my deepest moments of despair."
In The Power of a Whisper, a vision is cast for what life can look like when God's followers choose to hear from heaven as they navigate life on earth. Whispers that arbitrate key decisions, nudges that rescue from dark nights of the soul, promptings that spur on growth, urgings that come by way of another person, inspiration that opens once-glazed-over eyes to the terrible plight people face in this world.... Through firsthand accounts spanning 57 years of life, more than 30 of which have been spent in the trenches of ministry, Hybels promotes passion in Christ-followers' hearts for being wide open to hearing from God - and for getting gutsier about doing exactly what he says to do.

I am a Christian and live in Dover
This book is a great encouragement, with real life scenarios that I can identify with. A reminder to listen out for what God is saying and proximity to Him. His voice has been a guide in my life's decisions for over 30 years. The fact that pastors also make mistakes and God intervenes with advice & wisdom helps knowing that God loves us, whoever we are.
I just finished listening to this book, it is very insightful and will help anyone that is searching. It doesn't matter if you are a babe in Christ or a more mature leader in Christ. This information is focused, moving and if your not impacted, you best get on your knees and have a serious talk with God.
"Thought provoking and inspiring."
This book ranks 3rd in my long list of books.
Bill Hybels because he shared some of his experiences and lessons learned in a way that I could identify with and grow spiritually.
Scott Brick is my absolute favorite.
It made me reflect, laugh and cry.
"Great book if you are looking to hear from God"
I used this book and the study materials that are available with it to run a Bible study at home. I found it to be one of the most practical guide to understanding how to hear God's voice in your life. Myself and several members in our group are trying to put into practice the teachings that Bill Hybels talks about from the Bible We all are keeping your ears open and pointed toward God in our daily lives and hopefully that will lead two a deep Impact in the world around us.
"A needed read"
One of the best most helpful books I've read this year. God really uses Bill Hybels in some amazing ways. he has been used to touch my life over the past 16 years.
I got this audio book primarily because of a small group study. but I am really glad that I did as he gave me further insight into how to understand God's Whispers for me.
This book was extremely motivating! I dare all Christians to get it and read it.
"Powerful, thought provoking book"
If you're looking to deepen your walk and prayer life with God, this is a book worth reading several times. I know I intend to. Deeply spiritual and thoughtfully written, Hybels walks you through his own journey of learning to listen to God more closely and how it has impacted his life, lessons he's learned and he invites you to take the same journey.
I believe this to be one of my top books to listen to. It truly spoke to me and I just embraced it I mostly listen to it on my drives between sites and it was hard to pull away from God's message was coming through.
I'm not sure at this point.
No, but I liked his voice it was a good tone and flow easy to listen to.
So many I had to buy the paperback for my wife cause she's the visual reader I'm more auditory listener.
"Excellent book, maybe Hybels' best"
no, i actually prefer having the book in hand and actually listening to it read, as it helps me
