4.0 out of 5 stars A very helpful book, 26 April 2013
This review is from: The Voice: How we can participate, how we should respond? (Paperback)
This is an important book that the body of Christ needs to take notice of, but I fear that it will not be popular in some circles. This is a very realistic book which reflects The authors long walk with the Lord. Don Nori shows us on page after page the need for brokeness and repentance, he avoids any triumphalistic assertions. His honesty makes the book very attractive because he shares his own weakness and is thereby an encouragement to other disciples of the Lord. So often when we read books about hearing God we find a nice neat formula but this is avoided because our author is more concerned about our relationship with the L:ord than with techniques. If you read this book with an open heart you will receive much good instruction that will enable you to hear God more clearly.

He raises a genuine issue about the nature of God's anointing upon our lives, so often we expect some miraculous download but Nori rightly reminds us that through the Holy Spirit God indwells us and therefore we need to be sensitive to the Lord who indwells us and flow in the gifting and grace that he has already imparted to us. In many ways this book is talking in a very practical way about practising the presence of God, this enriches the book and has the potential to be a godly influence in our own lives.

some people will say that the book is too subjective, my reply to this is to remind the reader that there is an essential subjective dimension to the Christian faith the problem occurs when some turn their Christianity into a form of subjectivism, but, Nori avoids this by anchoring all of his teaching in the Word of God. In this regard some will say that Nori does not spell out how to relate Word and Spirit but we must see that the whole book shows us how to do that. The author calls for discernment and he demonstrates by the way that he writes that he is discerning. We need this sort of book to complement those that give more formal teaching.
However I do think that he is overly harsh on theologians, I know that many theologians fit into his description but on the other hand you have writers like Rodman Williams,Larry Hart, and Frank Macchia who have served the Church by giving of their wisdom in a way that promotes renewal in the church. But these comments should not distract from the contents of the book, this is a book that needs to be read by all who want a closer walk with their God.
