About The Books

Fred Craddock

Short Parable-like Stories

James Webb’s ‘The Listening Book’ is a thought-provoking and beautifully written challenge to the way in which we live our lives in a complex world. Through a set of parable-like short stories, Webb offers us an innovative and creative insight into God’s word. While being engaging and captivating throughout, the stories never lose their subtlety and charm.

James’s weekly blog, out each Thursday, is also a great read. The Man who Sold me a Pear was the 2016 winner of the Good Samaritan short story award with ACW and Street Pastors.

Reminiscent of the Style of Fred Craddock

The Listening Book‘ is being used in primary and secondary schools, church services, Sunday school, leading devotions and mediations. Each story has great potential for discussions and provoking thought.

These tales are an exploration of some of the ideas we find in the Bible and each one carries the essence of God’s word. James uses his background in Bible teaching to combine both scriptural integrity with an enchanting written style to create what is, without doubt, a unique and perceptive book.

Something for Everyone

In addition to being beautifully written, ‘The Listening Book’ is stunningly presented. The smooth white cover endorsed with an iconic shell looks eye-catching on a coffee-table, with astounding photographs throughout. A pleasure to flick through, this book’s easy-to-read style makes it accessible to both young and old alike.

‘The Listening Book’ aims to present some of the concepts found in Christianity in a new and intuitive way. With themes ranging from love to evangelism, it really does have something for everyone.
