Publisher's Description

Throughout the past two decades, Renita J. Weems has been noted and praised for her writing, galvanizing national speaking, and pioneering scholarship in the field of Old Testament studies. Yet in the midst of her celebrated work, she was experiencing a profound spiritual crisis permeated by a hollow, painful silence that seemed, at times, to mark an irreparable rupture in her communication with God.
In this deeply affecting book, Weems addresses the believer's yearning for God through periods of inconstancy, vacillation, and disenchantment. Her own spiritual disquietude will be familiar to all who struggle to maintain faith while the details of daily life -- negotiating with children and spouses, caring for ailing parents, living up to professional expectations, developing hobbies, managing finances, and planning for the future -- compete for energy with one's relationship with God. In sharing her own strategies for redefining mundane rituals so that they contribute to reverence and devotion, Weems offers a beacon of light for all believers struggling to listen for God amidst the din of worldly demands and distractions.

Editorial Reviews

Essence Anyone who has fought to hang on to faith amidst life's difficulties, large and small, will find this book a gem worth keeping.
Colman McCarthy The Washington Post Book World Weems' book, a deep well of reflective and often uplifting prose, shows a writer confessionally and candidly explaining the burdens of believing....While Weems listens to her Almighty, readers can listen to her -- and hear the voice of a wise and doubt-challenging woman who writes as powerfully as she believes.
