An exploration of what it means to hear voices, through study of accounts from Christians who have auditory verbal hallucinations

About the Author

Christopher Cook is Professor of Spirituality, Theology and Health at Durham University and co-investigator in the interdisciplinary Hearing the Voice Project funded by the Wellcome Trust.


Beginning with experiences of Christians at points of crisis, conversion or calling, Dr. Cook moves to more complex dialogues with God or evil, and the phenomena of possession and deliverance. Without presuming to answer all questions, he probes the psychological and spiritual dimensions of our inner voices, thoughtfully relates scientific insight to theological wisdom, and argues convincingly for an informed pastoral approach. -- John R. Peteet, MD Associate Professor of Psychiatry Harvard Medical School Boston, Mass.
In Christians Hearing Voices we see movement from an individual's experience, into that of being in community with others who have also heard and responded to the mystery of voices. Professor Cook has gathered many contextualised examples and with warmth, respect and expertise reflected upon a phenomenon that is shown to be an integral part of our humanity. -- Revd. Jean Fletcher, Methodist Minister
