How to Get the Most out of a Sermon
Jay Adams

Sixteen years ago Dr. Jay Adams released a serious book on the importance of listening to the Word of God as it comes from the preacher. Sadly, the publisher selected a comic book figure for the cover, and a title that did not convey the serious tone of the book. It is the privilege of Solid Ground Christian Books to give this long-fogotten book a new chance to reach the ears and hearts of a new generation.

"Scores of books flood the market on how to preach; few focus on how to listen to preaching. Few parishioners understand Calvin when he said that hearers should become as involved in sermons as preachers. In BE CAREFUL HOW YOU LISTEN, Jay Adams begins to redress this imbalance by providing numerous practical tips on how to get more out of sermons--even poorly preached sermons! Wise are the church leaders who give a copy of this book to every family in their church." - Joel R. Beeke, President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

BE CAREFUL HOW YOU LISTEN is book that will be useful for new believers and for seasoned veterans as well. In his usual candid style, Dr. Adams seeks to challenge the people in the pew to take up their task of sermon-hearing with earnestness. The book will be very useful in Sunday School classes, Bible Studies, Small Group settings, and even in Family Reading.

"I have written this book because of the dearth of material devoted to the genuine concern for preaching from the listener's point of view. So far as I know, there is no other book like it." These are Jay Adams' words from the preface of the original edition of this work first published 16 years ago. Unfortunately, his words still ring true today. While I am thankful for the plethora of recent publications on the importance of expository preaching, I have often reminded our flock of the importance of expository listening. For this reason, I am thankful for the republication of Be Careful How You Listen. It will prove to be a rich resource for small group studies and Sunday School classes. It will also be of profit as a check for the preacher in developing messages by the Spirit that are in fact "listenable." I look forward to using it privately as well as corporately with our people." - Pastor Todd Wilson, Grace Covenant Baptist Church, Birmingham, AL
