AVAILABLE MID-SEPTEMBER in an audio/CD format, and read by author Ruth Haley Barton. SPECIAL PROMOTIONAL PRICE THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30, 2009.
Much of our faith and practice is about words—preaching, teaching, talking with others. Yet all of these words are not enough to take us into the real presence of God where we can hear his voice. This book is an invitation to you to meet God deeply and fully outside the demands and noise of daily life. It is an invitation to the adventure of spiritual transformation in the deepest places. It is an invitation to solitude and silence.
The beauty of a true invitation is that we really do have a choice about embarking on this adventure. God extends the invitation, but he honors our freedom and will not push himself where he is not wanted. Instead, he waits for us to respond from the depths of our desire. Will you say yes? Best Book on Spirituality for 2005—-Christianity Today.
Please note that the audio version of Invitation to Solitude and Silence does not contain the Group Guide, which can be found exclusively in the 2010 release of the book.
