This book will: introduce you to some of the biblical guidelines that point out the listener's responsibility; confront and offer solutions to many problems encountered in listening to sermons; outline a program to help sincere churchgoers sharpen their communication skills; deal with the needs of those who must listen to inadequate preaching; much more.
