IVP Books Invitation to Solitude and Silence: Experiencing God's Transforming Presence - eBook

Winner of a Christianity Today Book Award! 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 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? This expanded edition includes a guide for groups to use both in discussing the book content and in learning to practice silence together.

This book is very practical and yet challenging at the same time. The author wets your appetite and yet openly shares from her own experience some of the challenges in seeking solitude and silence. It is so helpful to those who want to grow in these disciplines.
