God Longs For Us To Speak
Every day--in the bedroom and the boardroom, on golf carts and jumbo jets, in coffee shops and small group meetings--people are talking. People chat, argue, gossip, flatter, maneuver, preach, strategize, and tell wonderful stories.
But too often it's only talk--and seldom the kind of meaningful conversations for which we were created. Hollow talk isolates us from our children, our spouses, our coworkers, and fellow believers. We are largely unknown, undiscovered, unmoved, and untouched, because our talk rarely reaches the soul.
It can be different, says author and psychologist Dr. Larry Crabb, in his uplifting new book. . . His passionate ideas will help you:
Join Larry Crabb on a life-changing adventure of encountering God in spiritual conversation grounded in God's Word, but not restricted by rote forum las or methods in SoulTalk.

"Shattered dreams, "writes Dr. Larry Crabb, "are never random. They are always a piece in a larger puzzle, a chapter in a larger story. The Holy Spirit uses the pain of shattered dreams to help us discover our desire for God, to help us begin dreaming the highest dream. They are ordained opportunities for the Spirit first to awaken, then to satisfy our highest dream."
To help you understand this neglected truth in the deepest and most helpful way, Larry Crabb has written a wise, hopeful, honest, and realistic examination of life's difficulties and tragedies. He wraps his insights around the bold story of Naomi in the Bible's book of Ruth.
As Crabb retells and illuminates this sometimes disturbing and often profoundly touching story, we are shown how God stripped Naomi of happiness in order to prepare her for joy. And we gain an unforgettable picture of how God uses shattered dreams to release better dreams and a more fulfilling life for those He loves.
Shattered dreams have the power to change our lives for good. Forever.
"God is always working to make His children aware of a dream that remains alive beneath the rubble of every shattered dream, a new dream that when realized will release a new song, sung with tears, till God wipes them away and we sing with nothing but joy in our hearts."
WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT THIS BOOK:
"As Samuel Johnson observed, "when one ascends the gallows, God mightily clears his head". Facing his own demise, Larry Crabb has written clearly and passionately in SoulTalk. It is an excellent guide to Kingdom Living, for the author lives as he communicates."
James M. Houston, Board of Governors
"In SoulTalk,Larry Crabb offers a clear pattern for the kind of communication that God not only desires for us to have with each other, but also which He alone enables by His Spirit. Once again, Larry urges us away from the numbing comfort of hollow religion toward the light of real, vital and supernatural communication."
Steve Green, Musician
"SoulTalk, as Crabb conceives it, is speech that focuses and fees desire for God. This book insightfully explores the SoulThink, as Crabb might have called it, that leads to SoulTalk. He knows what he is talking about, and sets it out clearly. Regenerate readers will be enriched."
J. I. Packer
"With piercing insight, this book exposes many of the deceptions currently passing for (and weakening) Christian relationships and points us to a better, deeper and truer way of relating to each other and to God - and , after all, isn't that what we all really crave in life? If you're tired of shallow, superficial Christianity, you need to read SoulTalk."
