Charles Stanley, “How to Listen to God”

“Not bad,” I wrote in my notebook after reading this book.  It’s not brilliant, but straightforward, well-organized, and generally believable.

As you’d guess from the title, there’s lots on prayer and meditation and their importance.  He advises, for one thing, just to be quiet and clear your mind.  I especially liked his discussion of how God can be trying to get our attention by making us restless (32-33) and by the blessings He give us (35-36).  And the author gives tips on how to tell when it’s not God who’s getting in touch with you, but something else — even Satan.
