Item Description...
THE GOD WHO HEARS was written with the aim that through understanding prayer we will draw nearer to God. Hunter stresses that God responds to who we are: our thoughts, feelings and actions. He deals with the persistent questions many people have: Is God listening? Are prayers always answered? and more in a straightforward, insightful manner.

Publishers Description
To pray is to know God. "If God really cared he would answer my prayer." "I hesitate to ask him anything." "I can't understand why he continues to ignore my deepest needs." Bingham Hunter recognizes that most believers have these thoughts from time to time. He encourages us to look at prayer from the standpoint of who God is. The true aim of prayer is intimacy with God. We pray effectively when we make him the desire of our hearts, Hunter answers our questoins about prayer by directing us to the nature and attributes of God and to our own lives. God responds not to our prayers but to who we are--what we think, feel, will and do. Prayer is communication from the whole person to the Wholeness that is the living God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Prayer is not a mystery  Oct 26, 2002
A previous reviewer says that he is looking for a book on the "mystery" of prayer, and this book does not provide what he is looking for. But who says that prayer is a mystery? The Bible itself does not say so. What is revealed is not mystery, but clear revelation, and this book systematically guides us to understand what the Bible says about the doctrine of prayer and related issues. Excellent.
A handbook to Christian living; prayer not so much  Feb 16, 2001
So I'm intrigued by prayer. This strange communication, influence perhaps, we have upon the sovereign, almighty King of the Universe. Intrigued, I decide to try and learn as much about it as I can. I'm reading lots of things -- Andrew Murray, Henri Nouwen, as well as more moderns, like Dutch Sheets and whoever wrote "too busy not to pray".

Hunter's point in writing this book is a little different than what I was looking for. I'm trying to understand this profound mystery of prayer; he's setting out to show how prayer is a piece of a harmonized spiritual life. The book reads mostly like a handbook on Christian living - with chapters devoted to the holiness of God, the sovereignty of God, forgiving each other, obeying God, even church discipline. He has a good point -- that no part of the christian life is disconnected, and all of these will affect one's prayer life, ability to hear God, and God's answers to prayer.

I believe that he is a seminary professor or pastor of a large and largely successful church, and he writes like one. Everything's very pragmatic and classroomish; there's no mystery or wonder involved. And he writes like a speaker (note to speakers: writing out your speeches is not the same as writing a book.) funny or interesting story, weak and obvious tie to relevant material, then fully jump into the teaching points and forget the corny story altogether.

So basically, I got pretty bored with it. It's not bad, he has good points, he's not wrong, some people would probably benefit from reading it, maybe I did even, but it did not capture me, or change me. Ultimately, a forgettable book. Like so many others.

Does this feel harsh to you? Can you believe a christian would say this about another christian's work? do you agree with me and can't believe someone else would write that way? do you want to meet this strange guy? are you bored? e-mail me at i'd love to chat.

One of the best books on praying I've seen.  Apr 11, 1998
I read Dr. Hunter's book during my first year as a student at Talbot seminary. His insights into the nature of prayer, and how we go about praying, were a powerful influence in my own relationship with Jesus Christ. I strongly suggest this book.
