"I love Brother Steindl-Rast, and all of his work, especially this latest. He is right up there for me with C.S. Lewis, Denise Levertov, and the great Frederick Buechner. I am sure I'll read Deeper Than Words many times over the years."
Anne Lamott, author of Traveling Mercies
"I have always felt that in endorsing a book I was honoring the book and its author. Brother Davids Deeper Than Words, however, brought a new and startling sensation: I found myself sensing that the book was honoring me by allowing me to endorse it. Never before have I felt this way about a book… This book belongs on every pastors desk, and on the nightstand beside the bed of every Christian who is trying to deepen his or her spiritual life." Huston Smith, author of The Worlds Religions: Our Great Wisdom Traditions
"Beautiful and profound. With mystic vision and poetic clarity, Brother David opens us to the eternal vision behind the creed." Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart: A Guide to the Universal Teaching of Buddhist Psychology
"There is only one Brother David! To be in his presence is to know the possibility of walking faithfully on one chosen path, while not only respecting other faiths, but also studying them rigorously and experiencing them joyfully. In Deeper than Words, he distills a lifetime of insight into an inspiring book that can enlighten all of us to the universal similarities and the noble particularities of the worlds wisdom traditions." Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder Omega Institute and author of The Seekers Guide and Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow
"A stunning analysis. It may not make a believer out of you but it will show you the depth meaning of the Apostles Creed." Sam Keen, author of In the Absence of God: Dwelling in the Presence of the Sacred
"A timely, profound, and important book. Highly recommended for individuals who want a spirituality that makes sense!" Ken Wilber, Integral Spirituality
"Brother David has chosen as his text the Apostles Creed, a fundamental expression of Christian faith. He approaches it by asking point by point, What does this mean? How do we know? And why is it important? The open-hearted candor of his answers to these questions, reaching into his own living and contemporary experience, is what gives his words value and power… I am sure many readers will join me in feeling grateful to Brother David for his kindness in writing this book." His Holiness the Dalai Lama
"When Brother David enters into the heart and mind of his listener something new happens to them and they know it." Henri Nouwen, author of Return of the Prodigal Son
