Publisher's Description

The various crises we experience in society and culture today, at their root, reveal a spiritual problem: a profound lack of meaning. The mystical truths revealed in scripture can surely help.
 
Part One, "Entering the Desert," introduces the reader to principles of awareness, deep listening, and contemplation as essential for "hearing" what Scripture has to say. Part Two details the importance of mystery and struggle in the process of healing from any past or present wounds. And Part Three explores the "undivided heart" that is possible when we come to know God in silence and stillness.
 
With Be Still it is possible to explore the contemplative dimensions of the Bible, either on your own or in a group setting, as you perhaps never have before.

Editorial Reviews

The wonder of this book is that it makes mysticism accessible. It does not pontificate, it does not lumber in theology and philosophy. It provides simple, pure and genuine access to those seeking to understand with practical help along the path of discovery. It is a wonderful book. –Roy. A Hoagland, Hope Impacts

"Amos Smith's book is a wonderful support for any who are exploring the Christian contemplative journey. Whether you are an experienced practitioner of centering prayer, or venturing into new territory, this book offers encouragement, guidance and fresh insights from a fellow traveler in the rich, mysterious terrain of silence." -Sharon Grussendorff, Solitude Retreat Centre, South Africa
