Reviews Whisper

  • Randy Tramp
    If I had to use adjectives to describe this book, they'd be Powerful, Deep, Life-Changing, Awesome, Course-Altering, Inspiring. I could go on but you get the picture. Mark goes into detail about the light and what happened when God said, "Let there be light." I had no idea the scope of those four words."Hearing - This section reminded me of the zenith times in my life when hearing from God changed the direction of my life. Both were in quiet plac...

    One of the best and most inspiring books I’ve ever read. <3

    Whisper is a very difficult book to write a review about because there is so much in it. I have a habit of turning over the corner of the pages that I have a quote I want to review later. After one reading I counted the pages that the corners were turned – there were 50!Whisper addresses the question of “How to hear the voice of God”. It discusses seven languages that God uses, but does not limit the methods to seven. In the prologue, Batte...

    Does God still speak today? If the answer is, “Yes,” then what language does he speak? How can I train myself to hear his voice? These are the questions posed in Mark Batterson’s latest offering, Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God.The author’s premise is that the God who spoke the universe into existence still speaks today. The title of the book comes from 1 Kings 19:12 where God spoke to Elijah in a whisper, or a still small voice. Ba...

    WOW! Are you listening for God? Do you know how to be still and listen? In the busyness of our culture it's easy to miss the voice of God. All it takes on my side is to be still and posture myself before God. Once my heart tuned in God speaks in many ways. Mark walks you through 7 different ways God speaks. I appreciated his honest approach. Of course Scripture is our go to way to hear God and it's also what we come back to when verifying when we...
  • Joan
    Batterson suggests that our ears have been deafened to the voice of God. Learning to hear the voice of God is the solution to many of our problems. Hence this book.I really like many of Batterson's insights. One was about the nature of whispering. When someone whispers, you have to get close to hear what is said. It makes sense that God would whisper to us, drawing us close to Him. Batterson reminds us of the importance of silence and the distrac...
  • Lisa Hudson
    SPECTACULAR!Most people want to know if God’s still speaks to His people today. That’s the premise behind WHISPER: How to Hear the Voice of God. Mark Batterson has written a masterful work on knowing how to listen and hear when God speaks today. Batterson sets forth Seven Ways God Speaks Today and gives Alan great discourse on each of them. He eloquently describes how to pray the bravest prayer, how to be still and know and hear God’s voice...
  • Vicky Sluiter
    It’s so hard to communicate this without sounding trite, but this is simply one of the best books I’ve read on the subject of hearing God’s voice. Written in a way that causes you feel as if you are face to face with author Mark Batterson and chatting over a cup of coffee, I learned so much from Whisper. And not only did I learn new things, I also learned that I am doing a lot right!There are many ways to hear the voice of God, and Mark tal...
  • Ben Grenier
    This is my 7th or 8th Mark Batterson book I have read, but this one again is a tremendous book. If you are familiar with Mark Batterson style where he fuses real life personal stories, historical stories, and the Bible to drive home his points in the book."Whisper" is one of the books that you have to get alone and read because as you are reading it, you want to put down the book and do the very things Mark is saying. God is always speaking, we a...
  • Jeanne
    Excellent and interesting book! This has really opened my heart to all the ways God speaks to us every day.
  • Marjorie Tinnell
    This is by far the best Christian book I have read in a long time. A must-read for anyone that is wanting to draw closer to God and learn to hear His voice.
  • Debra
    What a wonderful book - it made me so much more aware of the Lord and how to hear Him in the tumult of my life!
  • Joel Barnes
    Batterson's style of writing has a way of drawing you in and it feels like you're having a conversation over coffee with him (perhaps at Ebeneezers 😀). His real life stories bring his insights to life. What a great read for anyone wondering how exactly to hear the voice of God!

    A must read!

  • Sarah Poling
    This book approaches how to hear the Voice of God, and it's a needed perspective in a world consumed with social media, family, events, busyness, etc....I've read Praying Circles around your Children, a long while back, and enjoyed Mr. Batterson's perspective and practical strategies on how to pray for your children. It's a short sweet book, an easy read, but challenge to take and apply, but simple little book. This book, is a longer, very develo...
  • Andre Nauta
    I have been a fan of Mark Batterson’s writings since I first read “The Circle Maker” a number of years back. In fact, I appreciate his books so much that I am part of a team of people who read his books before they are released to the public, so this review is based on an “uncorrected proof” of the book you are looking at on your screen.“Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God” may be Pastor Mark’s most important book to date. As he...
  • Enid Burgs
    I always look forward for Mark Batterson's books. They always seemed to challenge me in a way that makes me go back in scripture and dig deeper. This awesome book, Whisper, will challenge you to shut all of the external noise, distractions and pay attention to different daily opportunities to seek the whisper of God. The author mentions seven ways that God speaks to us: scripture, desires, doors, dreams, people, prompting and pain. Each one chall...

    Sometimes you have to yell to get my attention, but sometime a whisper is even more effective. And sometimes the voice of God is best heard in that still small whisper. And Mark Batterson talks about that whisper in his latest book: Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God. (Multnomah, 2017). I think I’ve read most, if not all, of Mark’s books, and I have to say that I’ve enjoyed them all. Whisper is no exception. When you start reading a boo...

    “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak.” (Jas 1:19, CSB)Go to a Christian bookstore and you’ll find many books on prayer. Those books tend to focus what we should say to God and how we should say it. Few, if any, focus exclusively on the other side of the conversation, which is how we should listen to hear the voice of God in our prayer life. Mark Batterson has now filled that void with Whisper. Before I share my observations an...

    3.5 starsDo you struggle to hear the voice of God? If so, then Batterson’s latest book may be one to check out. The premise of this book is that God still speaks to us today. It didn’t just happen in biblical times. However, most of the time, God uses a still-small voice that is not always easy to recognize. Batterson points out seven different love languages God uses to communicate: Scripture, Desires, Doors, Dreams, People, Promptings, and ...

    Has noise consumed your world? Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God will help you rethink your addiction to distractions. The author says, “When our lives get loud… we lose our sense of being.” With descriptions of the vastness of the solar system, to the infiniteness of the inner ear, Mark Batterson goes to great lengths to reveal how much God wants to have a relationship with you.Mark Batterson is an author and a pastor who believes, “...
  • Cheri Swalwell
    I read the book Whisper by Mark Batterson and thoroughly loved it. It was exactly what I needed because God had been taking me deeper this year in His relationship with me, showing me there are many ways that He speaks and I just have to get quiet enough to listen. I love how the author pointed out that God speaks to each of us depending upon our various personalities – that was so helpful because my children are always saying they don’t hear...
  • Michelle
    `Whisper` is an inspirational/ spiritual growth book by author Mark Batterson. In his book, Mark inspires the reader to listen to God's voice. I wanted to read this book because I need to hear God's voice. I need to hear His whisper. I think the author was motivated to write this book because so many of us don't know how to be still and listen for his voice. I like how the author explains himself and makes the book easy to read without talking do...
  • Brittany
    One of the things we can find amazing about scripture is that God talks to his people. God speaks to them in a variety of ways. Some of these stories seem to be very different then what we experience nowadays. For instance, why doesn’t God continue to speak to us though donkeys or burning bushes. It might seem that God has become removed. Fortunately, this not the case as Mark Batterson explores in his book Whisper. In the first part of the boo...

    Normally, I will only scan prologue's and introduction's. I mean, really. It's usually a serious meh.However, Whisper has a really powerful prayer on page three (in the prologue). I won't spoil it for you. You'll have to look for yourself. But, feel uninhibited not to miss it.If there's something that I find troubling about this book, it's the fact that Batterson has heard a whisper of God's voice. I don't add that, in the sense that's it's less-...

    Do you want to hear the voice of God but just don't know how or don't think He's talking to you? Did you know that the God that spoke this great universe into existence is the same God who still speaks to us today? Do you realize that He is speaking to you even today?In his brand new book, Whisper How to Hear the Voice of God, author and pastor Mark Batterson tells us that "God often speaks loudest when we're quietest." So often we just want this...

    I really was surprised by this book. I had no idea the impact it would have on me. I was eager to hear what Mark Batterson, the author, would say about the tagline - "How to Hear the Voice of God." There were several areas that I had to go back and re-read. And if you fan through my copy of the book, the print looks like it may be in pink since I underlined so much of the book with pink ink!Just a few quotes I love from Whispers:"However, the goa...
