Henry Blackaby’s Experiencing God—A Critique | Stand to Reason

There were no references to his academic letters, theological acumen, skill at biblical living, or personal holiness. However, this is largely Blackaby’s approach. Philip is sent to the Gaza road by an angel 8: Each is vital to our understanding and seriously qualifies the meaning of the passage, as this more complete citation of John 5: Jesus is arguing that He is utterly unique.

When the text says, “Listen to the voice of the Lord,” the word “listen” is synonymous with “heed. A giant oak tree that lasts for generations requires much more time to grow strong. Though the book is co-authored, it is written from the perspective of Henry Blackaby, so I will refer to the authors collectively simply as “Blackaby.

Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God, Workbook

I have listed below every time God gave a special directive of any sort. The Jews ask, “Who are you? Remember, John 8 is one of the great passages on the deity of Christ. In the New Testament we find no pleading with God or laboring in prayer for God to show them His will or give them His assignment.

No Divine Assignment For balance we must also note other important decisions not directed by God.


This is an excellent book. It is the ability to know, understand, and apply Scripture in every circumstance. The correct answer is no because Jesus was not only the perfect man and humble servant, but also the Messiah and incarnate Son of God. His omission of verses 18, a portion of 19, and verses 21, 22, and 23 is unfortunate. But Jesus never suggests such a thing.

The Scripture identifies different ways the Holy Spirit subjectively works in us. Also, he is inconsistent in his teachings. He solemnly notes the moral obligations of both. He details pros and cons of single life over married life. The Scripture teaches that such information comes from Scripture, not from private revelations from God.

It also frequently misapplied by others. There is no hint in this passage that a believer must “hear from the Lord” even on the weighty matter of choosing a spouse. This workbook right here is one of the most life-changing experiences of my young adult life so far.

My principal concern expefiencing where we get our information about God. Also, since He imparts spiritual gifts I do not deny the subjective element that is involved in their exercise.

Gpd ask other readers questions about Experiencing Godplease sign up. If you ever decide to read this amazing study, I strongly encourage that you do! My advice concerning this hengy is to Google “critiquing Experiencing God Henry Blackaby” and read what other apologists have said about the false information contained in Blackaby’s book.

Rather they are outsiders, bereft of eternal life, lost. Second, there is no evidence that any of these directives are sought. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Not a terrible book, but I would read carefully if you’re a more “regular Christian” instead of one raised in the church by pastors who became a pastor and whose children and grandchildren are pastors.


Blackaby seems to have a couple of things in mind when he mentions hearing God’s voice. There were two things that I did dislike about the book though. This was done in a time in which I had to henfy of God as huge in order to have hope.

This was founded by Soka Gakkai in by Tsunesaburo Makiguchi Lists with This Book. Was blessed with a good job, and gained prosperity in Spiritual things of God. He simply hoped that his actions were in line with what he knew from his studies of Scripture.

This is when the emergent church as we heney it today, all started. Nothing comes to mind that made me really wary when came down to his basic principles of how to experience God. As might be imagined, I am balckaby ambivalent to the authors’ approach, not least because the authors seem to be Calvinist in their approach, caught in a tension between emphasizing God’s initiative in calling people and the way that we should be rather than do and a need to emphasize obedience to God and action conducted in faith, something the authors fail to explain as deeply as expeiencing wish.

Why don’t the Jews “hear” in the sense that Jesus means, that is, respond and believe? Blackaby properly notes that “Scripture will be your source of authority for faith and practice.
