Overview

Silent Hope is about living a rewarding spiritual life in an endless desert-and the hope that makes it possible. It is for those who choose spiritual risk rather than security, when we surrender to a hunger for God that demands of us nothing less than raw faith and persistent hope, in the midst of God's silence. It is a journey that the author invites us to take in the company of great Christian, Jewish and Islamic mystics including Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Abraham Heschel, Augustine, Julian of Norwich, and Kwaja Abdullah Ansari. In fifty meditations and prayers, rooted in the wisdom of these great mystics, contemporary spiritual seekers are given an opportunity to better and more deeply understand our own struggle with the silence of God.
