Ruth Haley Barton ò 4 review

O 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. Some books inform the mind while others entertain the imagination This book does something that many attempt but very few actually accomplish change the life of the reader I am convinced that the reason so many people have stopped growing in their faith is not because they are overcome with sin but because they are overcome with distractions This book offers a better way forward a way into silence and solitude with the presence of God I highly recommend this to a culture intoxicated with entertainment and unable to pay attention to one thing for than 8 seconds
