Book Review: Crash the Chatterbox by Steven Furtick

When God’s Words are in your heart, the devil’s lies lose their power over your mind. Crashing the Chatterbox is overpowering the lies of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement with the promises of God. It is hearing God’s voice above all others.

In this book, Steven Furtick amplifies the voice of God, specifically focusing on three promises:

  • God Says I Am
  • God Says He Will
  • God Says He Has

When we remember the Word of God concerning our identity, His promise for the future, and His finished work on our behalf, we can begin to walk in victory over the noise that plagues our lives. When we listen to His promises, we forget our problems.

Overall I enjoyed this book and found it helpful both for personal application and, because the author is a great story teller, for sermon fodder. There were two or three chapters that sparked sermon ideas that I am excited to develop. I would suggest this book to anyone who struggles with insecurity, fear, condemnation, or discouragement (is there anyone who doesn’t?) and anyone who ministers to people with these struggles. You will find something here that will help you hear God’s voice above all others.

Caveat: I don’t agree with the all of the theology of this book. Please read prayerfully.
