Do You Hear God?

In this post, Scot McKnight calls attention to the recently-published book by anthropologist T. M. Luhrmann, When God Talks Back: Understanding the American Evangelical Relationship with God (2012, Knopf, 464 pages).  Based on ten years of research at two separate Vineyard churches (Chicago and Palo Alto), Luhrmann studies how people listen to God and respond to what they believe He is saying to them.  She address the issue from a social science perspective, not opining on the existence of God or the reality of His speaking.

The comment thread to Scot’s blog post provides some other resources on the subject of how to hear God.

  1. Repent, and follow the Easter Bunny!
    Repent, and follow Zeus, our Lord!
    Repent, and follow the Three Stooges!
    Repent, and follow Kirk Cameron into the depths of religious lunacy!

    1. Ken, one day you’ll come to your senses. When you do, you’ll realize things about God that are inconceivable to you now.

      For the sake of others, and even for your own sake, try to hasten that day.
