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? Yet Jesus said: 'Consider carefully how you listen.' The fact is, much more is involved in truly listening to Bible teaching than just sitting and staring at the preacher.

Christopher Ash outlines seven ingredients for healthy listening. He then deals with how to respond to bad sermons - ones that are dull, or inadequate, or heretical. 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.

• Where does the authority of a Bible teacher come from?
• Why is Bible teaching offensive?
• Why is it important to hear Bible teaching in church?
• How can we actually enjoy Bible teaching more?

These (and more) are the questions answered by this practical guide, which includes effective, hands-on suggestions for implementing each idea. All with the aim of helping us learn how to listen properly, so that through His word, God will make us more and more Christ like.

'We give Listen Up to all our new members' - Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church

A very positive and constructive guide to a listening that leads to deeper spiritual maturity.

Christopher Ash shows how to prepare to listen to a sermon, and since a sermon never leaves an unchanged one, the question is what to do with what you have heard?

Stefan Gustavsson

Director of Apologia - Center for Christian Apologetics

We Christians listen to thousands of sermons - and often have critical views on how it is preached. But when did we last think about our own listening? Christopher Ash has written a unique, challenging and very practical little book on how to develop one's own listening - and get more out of the sermon. Recommended!
