Publisher's Summary

Crashing the chatterbox = Overpowering lies of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement with the promises of God.

“I used to think that someone who struggled with the kinds of weaknesses I deal with daily was useless to God. I felt so often like I was drowning in internal dialogue I couldn’t control. It had been the soundtrack of my life for as long as I could remember.

Yet everything changed when I began to realize God has given us the ability to choose the dialogue we believe and respond to. And once we learn how, we can switch from lies to truth as deliberately as we can choose the Beatles over Miley Cyrus on satellite radio.

This is the key to pressing ahead and doing God’s will anyway, even as you are bombarded with thoughts, feelings, and even facts about why you can’t do it.

Some good points. Not as engaging as him live.

Had some good points but missed the energy of him preaching live. Still was encouraged but needed a little energy.

Awesome teaching!

This is my 2nd time through this audiobook ... I have to admit the first time through I struggled to get into it because I am so used to Steven's incredibly dynamic preaching, that I kept losing focus on what he was saying as he narrated this book, because it was delivered in a much more matter-of-fact way that didn't hold my attention the same way! However, I felt prompted by God to revisit it this week, and I am SO glad I did, as the message within these "pages" was confirmation of so much God had already been saying to me through Joyce Meyer and others, about overcoming the battle in our minds, and this time I got SO MUCH out of it, it was absolutely God's timing and He spoke to me in a very powerful way. I highly recommend this book, especially to anybody who struggles deeply with insecurities, doubts or fears. It is so refreshing to hear a man of God with such openness and transparency about his own failings and struggles - it gives me hope for someone like me!!

Life changing!

The Chatterbox Series has helped me more than I can say in deciphering God's voice from Satan's. I have now come to realize how much Satan dominates my thoughts and how I need to be still and silent and listen to hear God's voice. Please keep up the amazing work God has placed on your heart Stephen. Sincerely Dr. Cameron Campbell

Came to me at the right time

I picked this audio book by the title not really knowing what it was about. Once I started listening I couldn't stop. This came to me at exactly the time I needed it. Struggles with children with family with work. It just makes sense, thank you so much Steven for sharing your thoughts and wisdom, God bless!

Life Changing

Steven Furtick's book, Crash the Chatterbox, has been an incredibly powerful book that has helped me though the year of 2015. It's been a difficult year for me (suffering with Anxiety and Depression through Bible College on the other side of the world without family by my side) but this book has been such an encouragement for me with such practical tools to over come the Chatterbox. I feel like a new person with a bigger fighting power within me to Crash the Chatterbox.
It was particularly awesome to listen to it on Audible as I'm not a quick reader so I was able to listen to Steven read the book to me which made his stories feel so much real.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone I know.

Worth every minute

Steven Furtick is spot on with this book. Our family has read and listened to Sun Stand Still and Greater. We are glad to have this book as an addition to our tool box. They have facilitated many discussions with our pre-teen and
teenage children.

A gifted servant of Jesus

This book came to me at a challenging time in my life. Post 2 brain surgeries with a large tumor remaining. Forced into retirement- letting go of independence etc Steven’s message came exactly when I needed . Encouraging, inspiring, honest. He is indeed a faithful servant. I have recommended his books, you tube messages to many. Thank you very very much. Jeanne Drouillard

Pick up your arrow and fire!

Steven Furtick is probably one of the few pastors who bothers to narrate his own story. This is captivating and so much better than hearing a robotic generic American voice even for books of English author CS Lewis! This story will prepare you to fight when you feel like you've got no fight left. To squish the Devils lies and to untangle the ghastly thoughts of daily life and traumatic events. One to read and you won't be disappointed. Thank you Steven!

So many truths we all need to hear!

I loved how he delivers truth from a place of vulnerablity - he's honest about his own short comings. He ecourages us to seek more for ourselves than we sometimes believe we deserve. I'm pumped up and ready to 'crash!'

Completely transparent

I like the way you came all out in articulating what most people even Christians face everyday. The mental blocks that seems to keep us from reaching for all. It liberated me in places I didn’t even know to look. Worth a second listen and a keep. Highly recommend it.

Don't write it off based on my experience...

Overall I felt this book was ok, I guess I was a little disappointed with Pastor Stevens delivery With this book it differs a little from his preaching style so I wasn't always able to keep engaged. But I was definitely able to take something from this book from what I have heard from it although I didn't complete the chapter.

INSIGHTFUL

loved it.opened my ears to the chatter box so that i ignore it.the voice that tells you all the negative is loud but God's voice is more powerful if we listen to the still soft voice.a must listen and implement.
