About this ebook

This 30th anniversary edition presents the unique approach of Listening Hearts to the spiritual practice of discernment for a new generation.

Written to make the often elusive and usually clergy-centered spiritual practice of discernment accessible to all people, Listening Hearts features simple reflections and exercises drawn from scripture and from Quaker and Ignatian traditions. The seminal work in the Listening Hearts Series, this book has been a beloved resource for tens of thousands of individual readers, retreat participants, small groups, and church leaders listening for and responding to God’s call in their lives.

“With updated language, revised appendices, and added stories, Listening Hearts can impart the deep wisdom embedded in its pages to new generations of those who seek to answer the call of Jesus to ‘follow me’.” –The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church

this book was all right. it's all about how to discern vocation and God's call on your life, but it's not written in a very coherent manner and i don't think it's all that helpful. the appendices of the book were more helpful than the actual text.
