What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This book is a passionate, informed and insightful inquiry into the significance of silence in Christian thinking about God and its bearing upon a theological ethics of communication.” Reviews in Religion and Theology

“What starts off, quite modestly, as an exploration of what theologians and others have said about silence, develops into a serious challenge to the way theology itself is done, and indeed, to the way other researches are done, and conversation held … it is work that will yield rich insights.”
Quaker Studies
