I have known Shane Bishop for twenty years as a client and now, more importantly, as a friend. I can tell you that Shane lives out what he writes. This is one reason why his writing is so impactful and powerful. He doesn’t write from an ivory tower. He has lived out his faith, and God has given him an amazing insight and ability to communicate the truths of the Word in a practical way anyone can understand. The Ping Life will help improve your walk with God and enable you to respond better to God’s pings!

Images are powerful. Shane proves this in this book. His major image grabbed my questioning imagination. It didn’t take him long to convince me that The Ping Life is an exciting and fulfilling way to live the Christian life. If you are not a Christian, nor caring to be one, The Ping Life offers a way to live a full life as a human being. I say to all, “pick up and read.”

The Ping Life is challenging, humorous, insightful, and empowering. I have observed Shane's Ping Life, first-hand. I have seen a number of the pings heeded and even a couple of ping-whiffs. His vulnerability is disarming, and his studious approach to scripture is encouraging. I find myself emboldened to listen carefully for God's next ping in my soul.

With The Ping Life, Shane begins with the basic elements for following Jesus. But then he goes further, inviting us into a posture poised to hear the still small voice that calls us into the heart of God and the good life. This book is lined with stories and illustrations that make the abstract work of hearing from God both practical and attainable.

Shane Bishop's latest book, The Ping Life: How to Pick Up the Signal when God is Calling, brings a fresh perspective on listening for the prompts of the Holy Spirit (which Shane calls pings). In it, Shane weaves together personal stories and Scriptural insight, helping us all to discern God's promptings better. It's an easy read with life-changing implications. In a helpful section describing how we can better spot God's pings, Shane points out that pings prompt us to action and often lead us into a crisis of faith. But when we follow, that's when the fun stuff begins! Shane's writing is easy to read, humorous, and worth reading. I'm pleased to recommend his new book to you.

So many Christians feel like it’s on us to save the world – to solve every political and social problem or lead every person we meet to Christ. We’re plagued by guilt when we spend our time and money doing anything else, and we feel like failures when we realize we can’t do it all. Hello, overwhelm, exhaustion, agitation, and burnout!

There has to be more to the abundant life Jesus promised.

The Ping Life is a framework for living an authentic Christian life filled with peace, happiness, and purpose — one where you’re free to enjoy the blessings God has given you while still having an impact for God’s Kingdom.

In it, pastor Shane Bishop teaches you how to establish a baseline of Christian discipleship and tune your receiver to the frequency of God’s voice, so you can hear “pings” from the Holy Spirit and develop sustainable spiritual rhythms. Filled with stories of ordinary humans who listened to God’s pings and became part of Kingdom history, this is an entertaining, easy read that will inspire you, free you, and invite you into an adventure with God.

In an agitated, works-based world, discover a simple approach to life that is revolutionary, counter cultural, and life giving.

PING (noun): A prompt from the Holy Spirit; a heavenly signal in search of an earthly response
