Product description


Midwest Book Review A thoughtful and inspiring read from beginning to end, "The Listening Book: The Soul Painting & Other Stories" is especially commended to the attention of all members of the Christian community regardless of their denominational affiliation This is a beautiful book, in words and images, and will appeal to old and young and all those in between. As the title suggests, the stories are perfect for reading aloud and could be used in a range of settings. The delicate images add another dimension. From fables to folk tales, from stories told around the camp fire to John Lewis Christmas ads, humankind responds to the power of story and to the meaning that narratives give us. Sophie Duffy, Author of 'The Generation Game' and 'This Holey Life'. Job 28 pictures the search for wisdom as digging for gold. The Listening Book has numerous nuggets to mine, embedded in stories that will help you to remember them. Steve Divall, Senior Pastor, St Helen's Church, North Kensington.

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.
