B&H Books Troubling Deaf Heaven: Assurance in the Silence of God

Titled after a Shakespearean sonnet, this uniquely encouraging book teaches us how to listen for God and remove those things from our lives that drown out his bold shouts, gentle whispers, and indeed, his meaningful silences.

Jeannette Clift George encourages us to "Never underestimate the silence of God. It is his chosen punctuation and his timing is perfect. We live in a noisy world. Sometimes God has to be silent to get us to hear him at all...Sometimes silence is in itself a virtue when words would cause damage. There are times...when silence carries sweeter messages than spoken words.

Troubling Deaf Heaven sings to readers hearts! The elegant and lyrical writing lends sweetness to these pages, while the authors insights bring renewed hope. Believers are often baffled by what they perceive as the silence of God. Yet, this book provides a different look at the intimate communication between people and the Almighty. In a sensitive sweep of this subject, Jeannette Clift George explores the many facets of prayer, as she points out obstacles and presents new ways of listening. Both seasoned believers and new Christians will be blessed by this book, as it leads them ever closer to the Fathers heart. The scriptural principles are sound, and the flow of words is delightful. The author has interspersed her insights with memos, stories, and some poem-phrased thoughts. The result is a book of beauty! It was titled after a Shakespearean sonnet, and it certainly lives up to its namesake. There is a very personal appeal in these pages, as the author shares the thoughts on her heart. She gently, yet firmly, encourages readers to continue in communication with God despite a lack of apparent answers. Her possible explanations for His silence give Him glory while giving believers hope. She believes that God delights in dramatic pauses, which highlight His perfect timing in all things. Her words will inspire readers to listen and to be aware of His gentle whisper in our very busy lives. Her advice is practical and her purpose is apparent. Reading this book promotes a renewed respect for the Almighty and a rekindled desire to hear Him speak. -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com
