Overview

“Silence and solitude are precious commodities in my life. My restless self finds peace only when I rest in God.” —Brennan Manning

Whether we find solitude in a quiet and secluded retreat setting, on a park bench in the midst of a bustling city, seated in a 747 at 30,000 feet, or while pausing at our kitchen window, the call of solitude is a gentle but insistent tug on our hearts. We long, in these moments, to go deeper with God. We pause to wait on Him in silence. But sometimes we’d like a wise guide who can help us with this practice. In his honest, original, and winning way, beloved author and retreat leader Brennan Manning shares his wisdom, stories, and heart from his own experiences in solitude. Brennan’s meditations will prompt your own pursuit of God in the quiet places of your life.

Souvenirs of Solitude includes an eight-day retreat guide that provides stimulating promptings for your own meditation during solitude. Whether you use all eight or only an entry or two, you’ll find these exercises a refreshing breather from everyday concerns. Tyndale House Publishers

When you think of a souvenir, it's about things, mementos or paraphernalia that means to you a lot. This is exactly what the book is all about, a series of remembrances written in the late 1970's according to the author. But it's message and content is still relevant to this day and age. Each chapter contains thought provoking essays about the Christian life. The writer deals with a variety of topics such as the importance of prayer, penance,forgiveness among others. Each written in vivid recounts and human emotions captured into words inviting you to meditate in God's word in solitude. The author's style of writing reminds me so much of another good Christian writer such as Max Lucado. Aside from bible verses there were well written prayers at the end of each chapter by Sue Garmon. This is great gift book for those who want to spend time alone with God in the comforts of your home or can be read during "break time" at the office. Although it's structured kind of writing is more targeted in matured or older adults. This book also comes in handy whenever despair or loneliness strikes you as it offers words of encouragement and Christian growth. NOTE: I received this book from Navpress as part of their books for bloggers program and the opinions I have expressed are entirely my own.
