"Transparent, authentic, life-giving. What I love most is how Cindy covers so many aspects of how God can speak, yet she never limits the process to a certain way."

Bill Johnson, senior leader, Bethel Church, Redding, California

"The Voice of God, in my perspective, is a modern-day classic for the global prophetic movement and for those longing to cultivate a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Cindy is a general, and she commands your attention from the first page till her last sentence. It is with a joyful heart that I commend the life, ministry and writings of my dear friend Cindy Jacobs."

"Cindy Jacobs has given a gift to the Body of Christ with her book The Voice of God. You will be challenged, enlightened and activated to hear from the Lord and, with that insight and anointing, to change your world."

Jane Hamon, apostle, Vision Church @ Christian International

"Every Christian has access to the voice of God, and it should be an everyday part of our lives. The Bible says that we live not on bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from His mouth. His voice is the very Source we are to live from. I am so grateful that Cindy Jacobs has faithfully taught the Body of Christ how to hear God's voice in both practical and profound ways. This is a message that impacts our lives on every level and will bear fruit for generations to come."

Banning Liebscher, founder and pastor, Jesus Culture

"Hearing the voice of God is one of the most important aspects of the Christian life. Even Jesus declared that He could do nothing apart from what He saw and discerned the Father was doing. We, too, must live in this place of blessed dependence upon discerning the heart of the Father. I can think of no one more appropriate than Cindy, a world-renowned prophet, to translate for the Body of Christ how God is still speaking to us today. The Voice of God demystifies and makes plain and clear for us the power of prophetic intercession. This is prophetic mentoring at its best, for the masses."

Dr. Ché Ahn, founding pastor, HRock Church, Pasadena, California; president, Harvest International Ministry; international chancellor, Wagner Leadership Institute

"Hearing God's voice is simultaneously mystical and essential for all believers. As a prophet and intercessor, Cindy is uniquely qualified and effectively helps us understand and develop spiritual skills around practical interaction with God. The Voice of God offers not only techniques, but also the effervescence of an intimate overflow of a loving relationship with Jesus. This book is a must-read for believers who recognize our opportunity not just to study about God but to know Him and impart Him to a desperate world."

Jim Hennesy, pastor, Trinity Church, Cedar Hill, Texas

"Cindy Jacobs embodies the virtues of integrity, grace and humility as a Christ-centered, Bible-based, Spirit-empowered oracle of righteousness and justice. She is a woman of God who delivers the word of God in season, and this book reemerges as a catalytic resource for a generation asking the question, 'Does God still speak today?'"

Rev. Dr. Samuel Rodriguez, president, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference

"Cindy Jacobs' inspiring stories and personal encounters will help you discover how simple it is to hear the voice of God for yourself and others. Reading this book is like having Cindy as your personal mentor, helping you understand prophesy, dreams and visions in the context of everyday life. Her teaching is practical, biblical and insightful."

Cheryl Sacks, CEO, BridgeBuilders International Leadership Network; author, The Prayer-Saturated Family

"Wherever I go I am asked, 'How do you hear the voice of God?' In this book, Cindy Jacobs shares the joys and pitfalls of learning to hear God's voice. The Lord has appointed her as a prophet over nations and kingdoms. Her zeal comes forth as if it were fire shut up in her bones--fire flamed by the Holy Spirit of revival for this hour. This is a much-needed book."

Elizabeth Alves, president, Increase International

"God's voice is active today, but Christians must learn to rightly discern it. In my forty years of prophetic ministry I have found the principles, truths and life experiences presented by Cindy Jacobs to be biblical and true to the activity of the Holy Spirit. This book should be required reading for every Christian."

Bishop Bill Hamon, Christian Apostolic Network

"This should be required reading for every pastor in whose church intercessors and prophets are arising. It should also be studied carefully by any who feel led to respond to the Holy Spirit's promptings in intercession and prophecy. I agree fully with everything Cindy Jacobs says in The Voice of God."

John Loren Sandford, founder, Elijah House

"What Cindy Jacobs has brought in this book is strong meat (see Hebrews 5:14 kjv), birthed through her walk with God and her experiences with Him, through her mistakes, through practice. It certainly helps us discern what is spirit, what is truly of the Holy Spirit and what is satanic. I love this book. It's a winner!"

Marilyn Hickey, Marilyn Hickey Ministries

"Years ago the person who first convinced me by both word and deed that our sovereign God could and would speak directly to His children was my friend Cindy Jacobs. She taught me many important truths that I had never learned in seminary. That is why I am thrilled to see Cindy's dynamic ideas in this inspiring book. I cannot recommend it highly enough for Christian leaders of whatever theological tradition."

C. Peter Wagner, vice president, Global Spheres, Inc.

"In her easy-to-understand style, Cindy expresses several principles that will benefit those who are just beginning to step out in their gifting as well as those who are more mature in the prophetic ministry. I have been blessed personally to receive God's expression of encouragement through this choice vessel. Cindy is a unique gift to the body of Christ, one whom God is using powerfully to impact His people in this vital hour."

Jane Hansen Hoyt, president and CEO, Aglow International

"Filled with supernatural adventure and deep insight, this timely book is essential reading for today's spiritual leader. The chapter on spiritual protocol should be particularly helpful to pastors struggling to govern wisely in the midst of the turbulent winds of revival."

John Dawson, international president emeritus, Youth With A Mission

"The Voice of God by Cindy Jacobs is for real. Although the subject of the prophetic is sometimes confusing and often controversial, this book provides an invaluable tool to help us understand God's ways of speaking to and through His children in this, history's greatest hour of harvest."

Dick Eastman, international president, Every Home for Christ

"In The Voice of God, Cindy Jacobs communicates incredible wisdom on how to use revelation. I know of no one who has been a mother in the prophetic movement more than Cindy Jacobs. This book is a must-read! Whether you are just beginning to hear God or are mature in hearing His voice, you will find great wisdom in these pages."

Dr. Chuck D. Pierce, president, Global Spheres Inc. and Glory of Zion International
