Abstract
 
Description
Do you hear God speak? Can you put what you hear into words? Few people find it easy, but listening to God and speaking about God to others are both crucial if our vital experiences with the divine are to be remembered and shared. In this sequel to "The God Who Speaks", Ben Campbell Johnson offers timely guidance for the difficult task of translating divine speech into human words. "GodSpeech" will help readers articulate the presence of God that they discover from ordinary daily experiences. To illustrate how others have related such experiences with God, Johnson turns to the vital encounters reported by Parker Palmer, John Wesley, Andre Crouch, and Frederick Buechner. He also draws on the field of linguistics to suggest how we an acquire vocabulary - both verbal and nonverbal - to express our intimations of God. Making his advice concrete, Johnson concludes by vulnerably sharing his own attempts to listen to God. His "GodSpeech" is truly the work of a master in Christian spirituality. - from Amzon
