This is a book about silence for those who do not find it easy but know they need it. It is not about how to feel less stressed or more peaceful. It is not about feelings at all. Silence brings us face to face with our disordered appetites and reactive ways of living. But in the midst of life, it can be elusive and difficult to cultivate.
This insightful guide explores Christian understandings of silence, and suggests ways of growing in our relationship with it.
