Overview

James Webb’s ‘Listening Book’ is a thought-provoking and beautifully written challenge to the way in which we live our lives in a complex world. Through a set of parable-like short stories, Webb offers us an innovative and creative insight into God’s word and, while being engaging and captivating throughout, the stories never lose their subtlety and charm.  
 
These tales are an exploration of some of the ideas we find in the Bible, with each one carrying the essence of God’s word. Webb uses his background in Bible teaching to combine both scriptural integrity with an enchanting written style to create what is, without doubt, a unique and perceptive book.  
 
In addition to being beautifully written, ‘The Listening Book’ is stunningly presented, with astounding photographs throughout. A joy to flick through, this book’s easy-to-read style makes it accessible to both young and old alike.  
 
‘The Listening Book’ aims to present some of the concepts found in Christianity in a new and intuitive way and, with themes ranging from love to evangelism, it really does have something for everyone.

About the Author

James has had a variety of interesting learning experiences in his life, some from being a Baptist minister in the UK and then some from being a member of Cornerstone Community, a mission and discipleship community in Australia. He fancies himself as something of a storyteller, and this book is his first attempt to put some of the things he's learnt into words. James currently lives in Canterbury with his wife and five (yes, five) children.
'The Listening Book' is stunningly presented, with astounding photographs throughout. A joy to flick through, this book's easy-to-read style makes it accessible to both young and old alike.
