The Art of Listening – A Reading List

by Christine Sine


June is a month for listening. That will be our Godspace theme for the next month. How do we listen and what do we listen to? In preparation for this, a couple of months ago we asked our Godspace contributors what their favourite books on listening were. The follow is a list our suggestions – from many different perspectives and understandings. Enjoy and make sure you listen well!

For more books on The Art of Discernment, check out this resource list.

Oh, one of my favorite topics! I’d add Hearing God by Dallas Willard, Listening Prayer by Leanne Payne, and The Power of a Whisper by Bill Hybels. Look forward to checking out the titles on your list.

Thanks Amy – not sure why we did not think of Dallas Willard!

I’d add Susan Phillips’ two books – Candlelight: Illuminating the Art of Spiritual Direction and The Cultivated Life.

I’ve been enjoying Adam McHugh’s “The Listening Life” (IVP 2016). Might be a good addition to your already excellent list.

Thanks Alan. I will add it to the list. Lots of good IVP books out there.
