Does God still speak to man?

He absolutely does.
The common misconception is that the Bible is one book. The word Bible itself comes from Biblio, meaning library. The actual Bible, or the many versions thereof, was not compiled until the 4th century, A.D. -And that, after much contention. Another major change occurred when certain books from the Catholic version of the bible (Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, etc...), often referred to as the deuterocanonical books.

The bible was not one journal that one prophet would pick up, write their dealings with God, then hand it on to the next.
To assume that everything God has ever said or did is contained in the Bible is selling God short. The last verse in the Gospel of John states "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written." -John 21:25

I believe the Bible, don't get me wrong. I'm just amazed that so many people that claim to believe in a living God say that he does not speak to his servants anymore.
Why would he not?
Does he not love us anymore?
Do we not need his continued guidance anymore?
If the argument is to be used that all we need is in the Bible, then we might as well say that if we have Matthew, we don't need Mark or Luke (the other synoptic gospels), because they contain similar information.
Yes, God still speaks. Yes he still cares. And in my opinion, the world is in more need of his guidance and inspired servants than ever before.

Best Wishes,
