Publisher's Summary

Ruth Haley Barton describes how she has discovered the real presence of God, the God who is present through the practice of solitude and silence. Her audiobook invites you to meet God deeply and fully outside the demands and noise of daily life. It is a call to the adventure of spiritual transformation, an adventure that will lead you to freedom and authenticity, allowing you to become the person God created you to be.

In Invitation to Solitude and Silence, Barton offers spiritual guidance for your journey, helping you to hear God's call more clearly and showing you concrete ways to say yes. Chapter by chapter, she combines teaching and reflection on different aspects of the journey with activities and disciplines that will help you to practice solitude and silence. Barton offers the prophet Elijah as a biblical guide for your journey. And she offers her own perspective to help you understand the ups and downs you might experience along the way.

    "Step by step guided intro into meaning meditation."

    I appreciate the sincere, simple instructions; the clear direction; and, the encouragement to persist.

    This book is the best guide I have found for achieving a deeper, closer walk with God.

    For those who, like myself, have struggled to believe and accept that God really loves you and desires to walk with you moment by moment, this book is for you. Do not give up!!!

    "Further...for starters"

    If you have ever wondered about the practice of meditation, this is an excellent place to start. Ruth Barton began as an ordinary person hungering for something more. She provides the biblical basis, explores the benefits, and outlines the simple yet challenging practice of silence and solitude. An excellent start for those wanting to go further in their intimacy with God.

    "Required reading when exhausted ..."

    Started listening to the book when I was on a two-week vacation and didn't really relate. ... Then the new job with all the travel hit and I was so ready for Ruth's story. Solidarity and silence = staying centered and sane.

    "Fantastic!!"

    A very candid, respectful and practically helpful book dealing with a subject which can be intimidating and scary. Reinforces my belief that practicing solitude and silence are foundational for anyone desiring a deep and rich spiritual life.
