How God speaks and what happens when we listen, God Conversations by Tania Harris

Interview with Tania Harris, author of God Conversations:

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO WRITE GOD CONVERSATIONS?
 
There are a lot of good books out there that will tell you how to hear God’s voice. I wanted to write a book that would show you. The goal was to invite the reader into the journey of hearing God - through the doubts and fears brought about by contradictions in circumstances, through asking God the hard questions and discovering his answers and finally, through experiencing the joy and wonder as God’s words manifested into spectacular reality. 
 
HOW IS THIS BOOK DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BOOKS ON HEARING GOD’S VOICE?
 
Its brutal honesty! You get all the arguments and questions; you experience the fears and doubts. It’s the journey we all go through when God speaks, because he is always calling us to do things according to his ways and not our own! So you get to see all that in vivid detail. For example, when God spoke to me about giving away a large sum of money, my emotions turned from wonder to dread in an instant. That was real and I hope you can feel that.
 
IT CAN BE QUITE SCARY FOLLOWING GOD’S VOICE INTO THE UNKNOWN. DOES THAT EVER CHANGE?
 
In the beginning I struggled with the process a lot. There were tears, questions and plenty of arguments. You’ll see that in the book. I’ve since discovered the process doesn’t change, but I have. I’ve seen the pattern of how God works; I’ve learnt to trust him in the smaller things, and though the leading gets bigger, riskier and more supernatural, I now understand the process and that means there’s a whole lot less arguing and doubting than there used to be!
 
WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU HOPE PEOPLE WILL TAKE AWAY FROM READING GOD CONVERSATIONS?
 
My prayer is that readers that will recognise the voice of God in their own experience and be encouraged to follow it.

Book Description

How do I know it's God? is one of the most commonly asked questions of new and mature Christians alike, and the aim of God Conversations is to both equip and inspire the reader and show them that hearing the voice of the Spirit is accessible to everyone who chooses to follow Jesus.
 
Most Christians know that God speaks, yet struggle with how to recognise his voice in their everyday lives. What does God's voice sound like? How do we know if what we're hearing is from God?
 
Stories of God talking to his people abound throughout the Bible, but we usually only get the highlights. We read; "And God said to Joseph; 'Go to Egypt'", and then; "Mary and Joseph left for Egypt." We don't get a blow-by-blow description of how God spoke. We don't receive a detailed explanation of how they knew it was God, and we don't get to see what was going on inside their heads as they acted on what they'd heard.
 
In God Conversations, international speaker and pastor Tania Harris shares insights from her own journey about hearing God's voice. You'll get to eavesdrop on some contemporary conversations with God in the light of his communication with the ancient characters of the Bible. Part memoir, part teaching, this unique and creative collection of stories will help you to recognise God's voice when he speaks and how to respond when you do.
