What does God sound like? How do we know it's him?
Stories of God talking to his people abound throughout the Bible, but we usually only get the highlights. We read; "God said; 'Go to Egypt'", and then; "Mary and Joseph left for Egypt." We're not told how God spoke, how they knew it was him or how they decided to act on what they'd heard.
In God Conversations, international speaker and pastor Tania Harris invites you into her own journey learning to hear God's voice. Share the doubts, fears, and wonder as she navigates her conversations with God in light of the accounts of his communication in Scripture. Tania is very open and honest about her experiences, and it is that very vulnerability and humour that makes God Conversations so compelling. Her conversational tone draws us in whether we are a cynic, afraid or even bemused, to see, little by little, how the God of the universe really does want to communicate with his people.
Tania says: "From the moment I set myself to hear God's voice, he treated me like the cynic I was, guiding me step by step through every stage and providing easy-to follow object lessons that assuaged my fears and doubts. Years later, I realise those lessons were not only designed for me, but so that I could pass them on to others."
Part memoir, part teaching, this unique and creative collection of stories will help you to recognise God's voice when he speaks and to see what happens when we listen.
"Through her creative use of biblical story and personal experience, Tania answers the question most Christians ask: How do I know it's God? As a pastor, this is the perfect resource to put into the hand of any person wanting to know how God speaks today."
- Pastor David Crafts, Head of Pastoral Care, Hillsong Church, Sydney, Australia
"God Conversations invites us to go deeper and encounter God in a fresh way through Tania's personal experiences and the pages of Scripture. Reading it has been an unexpected treat because I've received coaching from one of the world's best. I couldn't put it down."
- Dr Clayton Coombs, Academic Dean, Planetshakers College, Melbourne, Australia
"Tania lives what she teaches. In God Conversations, there is a wonderful balance of personal experience and theological discussion that everyone can relate to. Her book is an exciting and stimulating contribution to this often misunderstood area of Christian living."
- Dr Jon Newton, Dean of Postgraduate Studies, Harvest Bible College, Melbourne, Australia
"Tania has woven theology, biblical stories and her personal journey together to show us how God speaks."
- Melinda Dwight, Alpha Australia
"You'll find yourself saying, 'I can do this too.'"

:How do I know it's God? is one of the most commonly asked questions of new and mature Christians alike, and the aim of God Conversations is to both equip and inspire the reader and show them that hearing the voice of the Spirit is accessible to everyone who chooses to follow Jesus.
Most Christians know that God speaks, yet struggle with how to recognise his voice in their everyday lives. What does God's voice sound like? How do we know if what we're hearing is from God?
Stories of God talking to his people abound throughout the Bible, but we usually only get the highlights. We read; "And God said to Joseph; 'Go to Egypt'", and then; "Mary and Joseph left for Egypt." We don't get a blow-by-blow description of how God spoke. We don't receive a detailed explanation of how they knew it was God, and we don't get to see what was going on inside their heads as they acted on what they'd heard.
In God Conversations, international speaker and pastor Tania Harris shares insights from her own journey about hearing God's voice. You'll get to eavesdrop on some contemporary conversations with God in the light of his communication with the ancient characters of the Bible. Part memoir, part teaching, this unique and creative collection of stories will help you to recognise God's voice when he speaks and how to respond when you do.
