From the Back Cover:

The Listening Heart can and must tune itself to hear the voice of God...we who have heard cannot be silent.

"This is a skillfully-written, much-needed book on the devotional life. Free of the platitudes and panaceas often found in "how to" publications, it takes the form of an honest, intimate, engaging conversation about the higher level of conversation that is prayer itself. In what might be called a spiritual autobiography, Dr. Tim Owings asks the hard questions, acknowledges his personal and professional struggles, and shares his own rich prayer experience with integrity and maturity. I read it with relish and recommend it with fervor."-L. Bevel Jones, United Methodist Bishop

"What I found myself meeting in these pages was a first class mind expressing deep reflection on his own experience, all of it enriched by years of pastoral experience and involvement with human pain and joy. This book does not merely study the mystery of prayer. To read it is to share a journey in prayer."-Canon Herbert O'Driscoll, Victoria, British Columbia

From the Inside Flap:

In a world rapidly moving toward secularity, where violence and tragedy have seemed to join forces with loneliness and relational abandonment, does God still hear and answer prayer?

Hearing God in a Noisy World answers with a resounding, "Yes!" Owings explains how to tune our hearts to hear God speaking in the dynamic interrelationship between creation, scripture, the people of faith, and the individual. Then he explores God's answers-"yes," "no," "wait," and silence-and our responses to them. These theological and practical handles for understanding God's voice in prayer will guide anyone seeking meaningful spiritual growth or coping with tragedy, illness, disability, spiritual loneliness. Written in an honest and straight-forward manner, readers will take away a new and exhilarating awareness of God's presence and voice in their lives. It is also an excellent resource for preaching or teaching about prayer.
