"Nathan Finochio is incredibly bright, contagiously humorous, and
gifted to be able to share profound truths in an engaging and
conversational tone. Although the noise of this world is loud and
contends for your attention, God loves you, wants what is best for
you, and desires to speak with you. If you want to know how to cut
through the chatter and truly walk in the power of God, Hearing
God is for you."
--Brian Houston, global senior pastor of Hillsong Church
"Nathan's infectious nature and colorful perspective on
life--married with his grasp on theology and God's Word--will open
your spirit and take you on a journey that is guaranteed to
surprise. In a world competing for our collective attention, I'm
confident that the wisdom and wonder of this literary experience
will translate into hope and freedom for many."
--Bobbie Houston, global co-senior pastor of Hillsong Church "Growth in knowledge and understanding does not have to be at the expense of joy and humility. Nathan Finochio has always carried himself this way in his preaching and now finally in his writing. I am so excited to hand people Hearing God. We need more people to do what Jesus has always done: Make the distant things close. Make the heavy burdens lighter. And make the soundtrack from heaven louder. If you want to grow in your ability to hear from heaven, be led by the Holy Spirit, and live like Jesus...this book is for you."
--Carl Lentz, lead pastor of Hillsong NYC "Hearing God is a book for our times. If they had asked me to subtitle it, I might have even suggested Hearing God for Dummies. And I mean that in the best way possible. I've always been a fan of demystifying all things God and religion--and that is exactly what my friend Nathan has done with this effort. He completely hits the mark. As followers of Jesus, we all too often remember that the message should be accessible for everyone but forget that our language can create barriers to understanding God in ways He never intended. Nathan's courageous attempt to explain this overwhelming but very real rhythm of faith is a guide we didn't know we needed."
--Judah Smith, lead pastor of Churchome and New York Times best-selling author of Jesus Is _____. "Hearing God is a guidebook for those seeking to better hear what God is saying to them. Nathan Finochio teaches us to find confidence in belonging to God and to be led by the Spirit. He cuts through many myths to reveal a biblical foundation for a personal relationship with Jesus. He grounds the reader in the truth of God's Word and debunks the myths often perpetuated through isolation, toxic community, and religion. You will be convinced that the Holy Spirit is seeking to speak to you in so many different ways and awakened to the many routes God takes to captivate your heart."
--Rich Wilkerson Jr., pastor of VOUS Church and author of Friend of Sinners "Nathan Finochio candidly points our souls toward connection with our creator in Hearing God. He addresses the real questions of our hearts--even the questions we rarely voice--with genuine care and biblical insight. You will be encouraged with every chapter and will find yourself reflecting on every part of your life through the biblical lens Nathan so practically and generously shares with us."
--DawnChere Wilkerson, pastor of VOUS Church
