A readable and thoughtful book focused on the care of the soul, I often think of John Ortberg, a Willard disciple, as Dallas Willard for the ordinary person. Loaded with stories, wonderful quotes and probing questions, I’d highly recommend the audio version of this book especially. It would also be helpful to a newer believer or someone who might be looking to go deeper in their love relationship with Jesus. ~ Mark Warner
Henri Nouwen said, “Without solitude, it is virtually impossible to live a spiritual life….We do not take the spiritual life seriously if we do not set aside some time to be with God and listen to him.” Whether you feel drawn to this statement, or sense a kind of resistance, that is all the reason you need to try this book by Ruth Haley Barton. Solitude and silence can offer something to all of us, and this Christianity Today Book Award-winner, offers practical suggestions on how to get started.
