About This Book
HAVE YOU HEARD?
Life shouts. God whispers. How can we hear God’s whispers when the struggles and worries of life distract us? How can we quiet our souls?
The Art of Spiritual Listening is about learning to listen to the gentle, persistent voice of God and help others hear God’s voice as well. With insightful and creative reflections, Alice Fryling guides us through Scripture passages that teach us how to experience and hear God more fully. Here you will find ways to:
·Become more attentive to God’s spirit
·Understand how to hear God’s voice in your own life
·Learn how to help others develop the discipline of listening to God’s leading
With an emphasis on spiritual direction, The Art of Spiritual Listening includes Bible study questions, prompts for personal reflection, and notes for leaders who wish to use the book in a group. If your life is too noisy to hear God, or if you want to hear his voice more clearly, The Art of Spiritual Listening will guide you to a deeper understanding of what it means to respond to God’s invitation to listen.
