Who hasn't sat through a sermon where the eyelids grow heavy and the mind drifts off into distraction? Many times it is difficult to pay attention and stay focused on a message shared from the pulpit, but where does the fault lie? It is quite easy to put all the blame on the preacher. Perhaps he is not interesting enough or lacks a certain charisma. Maybe the sermons are too dry and sound like a college lecture. Now while it is true that pastors must try and connect the audience to the text of scripture, it is a rare thing to find a preacher who should bear all of the blame. Communication is always a two-way street and the listener plays a part in effective expositional preaching.

Ken Ramsey tackles this subject within his work "Expositional Listening" and calls us as believers to look at the way we hear sermons. Delving into the scriptures, the author sets forth a theology of listening that challenges readers to work hard on hearing the sermon being preached. Touching on subjects from listening with head and heart to discerning truth from error, the book sets forth a number of principles to make sermons special each and every week. The book also provides a glimpse of how to put the word into practice for growth and change.

In large part the book succeeds through its simple instruction. The scriptural case for listening to audible lessons from the Bible is not hard to make, but the practical outworking of such calls is more difficult. The book provides example after example of how to practically work at listening so that sermons have a direct impact upon spiritual growth. If you long to get more from the sermons your pastor delivers, this book is a welcome resource. Even after the principles are learned, it deserves to be pulled down every so often to remind us all of the importance of the preached word.

There are a lot of books out there for expository preaching. However, there is a dearth of books on listening to sermons. However, the Bible is very clear on the matter of listening to the Word, and so this book is a much-needed contribution to the topic. Personally, I have preached quite a few times and have heard a lot of preaching of various kinds: the good, the bad, and the strange. However, after particularly bad sermons, I have heard more than one person comment that they thought that the sermon was good. I am convinced that we live in a generation that does not really know how to listen to sermons or how to determine a good sermon from a bad one. This book helps alleviate that dilemma. Ken Ramey takes both a theoretical and practical approach to the issue. He develops a small theology on listening and then makes application to listening to sermons. If the principles expounded in this book are applied, then one will certainly be more discerning during the preaching event and will be more ready to hear and apply the truth of God's Word to his or her own life.

I dare to say that this is one of the top ten religious books that I have ever read. It is not a lengthy book that drags out the idea Pastor Ramey is trying to get across to the reader. It is however, a great read, packed full of important information that the reader may not have ever thought about. One cannot read this book without hearing yourself say, "right on brother, preach it". This is a must read for everyone that loves hearing the true word of GOD and not just someones opinion. It is a masterpiece. Many of the pages of my copy [of the book] are "flagged with sticky markers" indicating places where I want go back and re-read. If you read this book your copy will be flagged also. The book is about your responsibility to listen to what GOD is saying through HIS word and His instrument. It's the unbiased word of GOD. You gotta' read it.

How does one listen to a sermon? It seems intuitive and yet it is not. We are by nature all passive listeners, easily distracted, focused on the wrong things in a sermon, and unprepared to hear the Word of God preached. This book helps make a case for good effective expository listening and gives tips on how to do that.
