LTRP Note: After one of our readers notified us today about the Mark Centre in Canada (affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren), we saw the need to post the following book review about a book written by the directors of the Mark Centre, Steve and Evy Klassen. If you, or someone you know, is planning on attending a retreat center, use extra discernment when there. Many, if not most, retreat centers openly promote contemplative spirituality. Just take a look at the retreat center’s bookstore (most of them have one) – that will tell you a lot.
What Will Ears Hear in The Mark Centre’s New Book?
“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” Isaiah 30:21
A new training resource offered by the Mark Centre (affiliated with the BC Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches) is a book written by directors Steve and Evy Klassen called Your Ears Will Hear: A Journal for Listening to God. The title of this workbook is four words taken from Isaiah 30:21 that are said to be the ‘watchwords’ of the Mark Centre.
The description of this book, which was written to assist people as they listen to God, informs readers that it:
“…has already received praise from international authors like Paul Hawker, who claims ‘Your Ears Will Hear’ offers a smorgasbord of stories and practices for seekers to draw from as they pursue their quest to hear God’s voice. In his foreword, Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With A Mission, promises ‘You will enjoy recognizing and listening to the voice of God while working through this book.’ Click here to read this entire book review.
