Basic listening skills are at the heart of all communication, especially pastoral encounters. In this updated edition of Swift to Hear, Michael Jacobs addresses listening and responding skills, describing the process of communication itself. Learning to listen—to hear what a person is really saying—is of paramount importance in any counseling situation; if practitioners can enhance these skills they will be far more effective. Clear explanations and numerous exercises make this an excellent book for training in all fields of pastoral work.
