We’re recommending this booklet, ‘Listen Up!’ as a really good read for all of us this autumn. It’s a practical guide to listening to sermons.
But, you may ask, why on earth does anyone need a guide on how to listen to sermons? Don’t we simply need to ‘be there’ and stay awake? The fact is, much more is involved in truly listening to Bible teaching than just sitting and staring at the preacher. Jesus said: ‘Consider carefully how you listen.’
Christopher Ash outlines seven ingredients for healthy listening, with really practical suggestions on how to hear better. He then deals with how to respond to bad sermons – ones that are dull, or inadequate, or wrong. And finally, he challenges us with ideas for helping and encouraging our Bible teachers to give sermons that will really help us to grow as Christians.
It’ll only cost you £1.20 (reduced from £1.50). It’ll take you about 30 minutes to read. And it could make a big difference!
