      “At a time when we are drowning in words—both digital and spoken—this quiet little book throws us a life preserver. The Listening Life is gentle, thoughtful, biblical, and eminently practical.

Throughout The Life Book, the margins are filled with handwritten teen reaction ranging from an agnostic to a strong believer.
