The sense of hearing was particularly important in the ancient world when the vast majority of people were illiterate. Rhetoric, or the art of speaking, has been given much attention in this context, but the art of listening has been virtually ignored. This book examines the ways in which, by practicing this art, early Christians effectively became 'literate' listeners, with an ability not only to grasp the basic message of the faith but also to follow the ways inwhich it was elaborated, in improvisatory sermons of extraordinary virtuosity, by early Christian teachers. It deals with the practical, as well as the theological issues which listening to anincorporeal, unknowable God raised for early Christians and shows how reflection on them proved to be transformative of their lives as well as their theology.

Our culture is one that speaks rather than listens. From reality TV to political rallies, there is a clamour to be heard, to narrate, and to receive attention. It reduces 'reality' to revelation and voyeurism. The Art of Listening argues that this way of life is having severe and damaging consequences in a world that is increasingly globalized and where time and space is ever more rare. It addresses the question: how can we listen more carefully? Theory is combined with real stories from the experiences of the desperate stowaways who hide in the undercarriage of jet planes in order to seek asylum, to the young working-class people who use tattooing to commemorate a lost love. Les Back shows how sociology is in a unique position to record 'life passed in living' and to listen to complex experiences with humility and ethical care, in opposition to the Babel of voyeurism that has taken hold in the mainstream media.
