One of Leighton’s most beloved books, The Attentive Life: Discerning God’s Presence In All Things, is now available in a second edition. You can find it here.
In this new video, Leighton talks about why he wrote the book and why attentiveness as a spiritual discipline and a way of living in our world is more important than ever.
“I have seldom met a man who had a deeper burden for evangelism” said Billy Graham of John Wesley White, for many years an Associate Evangelist for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The holder of a doctorate in philosophy from Oxford and the author of more than twenty books, John Wesley White also held the distinction of making a key introduction in Leighton’s life! Watch and listen as Leighton tells the story.

Leighton’s ministry of preaching has spanned many decades and taken him all over the world many times over. But there’s a first time for everything, right?
In this delightful video, part of the “Odd Places and Peculiar People” series, Leighton tells the story of his first sermon, years ago. Pictures of the actual church in Pardoville are below!
In the last few days I have been listening to a series by the late Henri Nouwen on The Life of the Beloved.
I never met Henri, and he died (quite young) before I might have.
But through his writings – and this video series – I feel as I have met him. His face is strong, his voice powerful.
The video series can be found on YouTube – here.
As I see him speaking to a large group I hear God’s voice – the “first voice” as Nouwen describes it – saying again what I personally need to hear, over and over.
The voice that said to Jesus, “You are my beloved” speaks also to you and me.
These talks have been good for me these Lenten days – they may be for you too!
In the next installment of our new video series “Odd Places and Peculiar People,” Leighton recalls meeting the legendary heroine of the World War II era Corrie ten Boom, long with his daughter Debbie.
Leighton’s long career has included visiting many odd places and encountering many special people – and the journey continues!
In a new occasional video series, he will share some of these stories which are whimsical, fascinating, and offer many God-moments. Here, Leighton introduces the series.
