Publisher's Summary

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 listener 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.

Excellent topic lacking in narration

I love this book b/c this topic is something I struggle with. The text gives lots of great background from Christianity as well as other teachings, to the importance of slowing down. So I love the book at this level. I find the book very informative and challenging for my own continued spiritual development.

My problem is with the narration. The narrators voice "doesn't minister to me" and I find it difficult to listen to her reading. The pacing of the narration is inconsistent. There are times when I am expecting a pause at the conclusion of a sentence or a thought and the narrator just blasts on through to the next sentence or thought. The audio quality is also distracting, but I can't place my finder on the issue - I'm not an audio technician.

At the end of the day, I'd probably encourage the reader to buy a hard copy or digital copy and skip the audiobook.
