If you have been a Christian for a while, or been around them for a while, it is common to hear the same Biblical concepts over and over. This can lead to your eyes glazing over and you thinking of something else instead of listening. In The Second Listening Book, James Webb adds a twists in the telling of these truths to stop the glossing over effect.
From time to time, we all need to step back and look at what we are doing, to see if we’ve comprised on our beliefs. A book like this can help with that. Each story presents a truth or moral that we should live by, but they are presented in a unique way. Humor is also mixed into the stories, which makes reading it enjoyable, even if your toes are stepped on.
What I like about The Second Listening Book is that you can easily see his point, but are caught off guard with some of them. You think to yourself, “Boy, I’m glad I’m not like… oh, wait.” The pretenses we put up are broken through, and we’re left with the truth of the matter. James Webb has done a great job with a book that is simple, yet full of things to think about.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher as part of the BookCrash program.
