Book Review: Whisper

Hearing, or maybe recognizing, the voice of God is something people can struggle with their entire lives.  Mark Batterson has set out to help us in this endeavour.

Whisper is exactly what I needed in this season.  I say that because the book cane summed up in one sentence, “Is God’s voice the loudest one in your life?”  For me this has been an issue of late and Batterson sets out for readers seven ‘languages’ to lean into.  Some are evident (dreams) and we are used to them while others are ones we hope to not encounter (pain).

The writing was a good mix of biblical truth and applicable commentary with a good measure of Mark’s personal life stories.  These help to bring life to the voices spoken of.  I enjoyed “Whisper” and found myself engaged more as the book continued, though I feel the ending was a little weak.

I would recommend this to anyone looking to hear God’s voice – or rather recognize his voice when he speaks.
