Item description for Listening for God, Vol. 1: Contemporary Literature and the Life of Faith (Reader Guide) (Vol 1) by Paula J. Carlson & Peter S. Hawkins...

Where do you listen for God? In this new collection of stories and essays, the challenge is to pay attention everywhere. Listening for God is a resource intended to help readers investigate how life and faith merge in surprising ways and places. Contemporary American literature may not be the most predictable place to listen for God, but it may well turn out to be among the most rewarding. This reader includes ten selections, brief author profiles, and reflection questions arranged in eight chapters. Each chapter is supplemented by a video segment introducing a featured author. A leader guide that provides session study plans is packaged with the video, or is available separately.

Reviews - What do customers think about Listening for God, Vol. 1: Contemporary Literature and the Life of Faith (Reader Guide) (Vol 1)?

contemporary gospels  Feb 2, 2004
Editors Paula S. Carlson and Peter S. Hawkins have compiled stories and essays from contemporary writers that reflect people's experience in dealings the life events, boredom, crises, losses, disappointments and unexpected touches of grace. Some sections are painful to read and others are funny or joyful (like life itself.) It is interesting that even in our secular society people still ask the questions Job asked and still try to find meaning for themselves like Abraham and Sarah. The editors provide brief bios for the writers and propose discussion questions for groups.that might be helpful in groups. It seems that the problems of being human have not changed greatly in the last few thousand years.
A wonderful resource for discussion groups  Mar 15, 2002
Paula Carlson and Peter Hawkins have over the past several years pulled together short stories and a few essays, three volumes in all, from contemporary authors in which faith concerns of all types are raised. The authors are first-rate and include the well known--John Updike, Flannery O'Connor, Gail Godwin, John Cheever and others--to lesser known authors like Tillie Olsen and Tess Gallgher. Each of the volumes includes a leader's guide, and volumes 1 and 2 include videos with interviews of the authors or of people who knew the author.

These are excellent volumes for discussion groups that bring out the multitude of issues, problems, life crises that each of has or will face. The relationship to faith and religion are sometimes clear, sometimes not so obvious, but all present situations of interest and, often, deep concern, for individuals. Having facilitated two of this series, the atmosphere provided by the stories and their general literary excellence leads easily into discussions where people can reflect anew on the importance of grace and the mystery of God in our lives

Loved this collection of readings.  Oct 27, 1998
This is a very moving collection of essays for anyone interested in how religious thought affects the writings of authors. I couldn't put the book down and recommend it for discussion groups as well.
