About the Book

 


Book:  The Feeler

Author: James W. Goll

Genre: RELIGION / Christian Living/Spiritual Growth

Release date: March 9, 2021

 

The Scriptures give us a full-color picture of a God who is moved by emotions such as yearning, love, and compassion. Our human emotions reflect the emotional qualities of our Creator, who made us in His own image. Feelings have a vital place in any believer’s life, not just in those who have a more sensitive nature due to their personalities.

The Feeler by James W. Goll delivers a remarkable biblical perspective on our emotions and how they help us to discern and act on God’s voice. We experience the love, joy, and presence of God with our feelings. Our emotions have an impact on our bodies, our level of holiness, our relationships, and our decisions.

The Bible tells us we need to have our “senses trained to discern good and evil” (Hebrews 5:14 NASB). What are we training? Both our natural senses and our spiritual senses. Our physical senses, with the addition of “knowing,” correspond to our spiritual senses in these ways:

  1.  Eyes (sight): visions and dreams
  2.  Ears (hearing): voices and sounds
  3.  Heart (touch): emotions and feelings
  4.  Tongue (taste): good and evil
  5.  Nose (smell): good and bad
  6.  Mind (knowing): divine thoughts and impressions

This book will show you how to listen for and recognize the often subtle ways God’s Spirit speaks to believers, as well as how to discern good and evil spirits. With consecrated gifts and senses, you can reach out to the body of Christ and to the world at large in both spiritual and practical ways, making you much better equipped to fulfill your role as an ambassador of the gospel.

More from James

THE FEELER is a fascinating biblical look at how to receive divine direction through your God-given emotions. Though not part of an official series, THE FEELER completes a trilogy [The Seer and The Discerner] that stimulate our spiritual senses in hearing and acting on God’s voice.

My Review

We live in a society where being someone who is sensitive or who leads with their feelings is often seen as a bad things. After all, emotions can get us into trouble... we need to think with our brains instead, right? But, if feelings were such a bad thing... why would God have given them to us? What if instead of being a hindrance, God gave us these emotions to help us to better hear and understand him. This idea of feelings is just the topic of Dr. James W. Goll's newest book The Feeler

I must say, this isn't really a typical read for me and perhaps not one that I would have chosen on my own. Regardless, I did find it quite interesting. As Christians, we hear a lot about discernment. It's one of those churchy words that gets thrown about quite often... but how do we really come about it? That's a topic I personally haven't seen or heard much about. This unique read takes on that idea and shares how God uses those emotions He has given each of us can better help us to understand Him. Like I said, it's quite unique. Filled with lots of Biblical references in addition to personal stories, this is certainly a book that will make readers think and might just offer some new perspective on our spiritual journeys. It is definitely one worth checking out.
