Fully revised, with a foreword from James Bryan Smith to introduce a new generation to contemplative prayer.

Do you long for depth and authenticity in your relationship with God? Do you want purpose and daily direction but can’t seem to find the right prayer to receive it? When the Soul Listens will guide you toward contemplative prayer, “the lifestyle that invites us to live each moment with an awareness of God’s presence,” writes Jan Johnson. Learn to find rest and guidance in God, opening yourself to God’s presence and direction through this practical approach.

If you are disillusioned, experiencing spiritual dryness, or simply looking for the next step in your spiritual growth, When the Soul Listens offers a clear path to a fulfilling connection with God.

Comments from people who have used this material:

"A well-written and finely constructed introduction to the prayer of simple regard."
Brennan Manning, Author of Abba's Child

"If you are seeking a closer walk with God, this is the book for you, and if you are not seeking a closer walk with God, this is the book for you. It is a distillation of practical wisdom from a variety of wonderful sources and from Jan Johnson's own experience. It has already enriched my own spiritual life, and I intend to come back to it over and over."
Kay Lindskoog,, author of C. S. Lewis - Mere Christian and Dante's Comedy - Journey to Joy
