"Maggie Ross clears away the 'white noise' that so often attends writing
and talking about faith. She invites us into real quiet, which is also real

eludes our concepts and even our ordinary ideas of 'experience'.
A really transformative book." —jacket comment by The Most Rev'd Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

"This book is intended for everyone who has had enough of 'spiritual
writing' and is looking for something that will make sense of normal human experience and integrate it into the knowledge of God through Christ." —from the Foreword by The Rev'd Professor John Barton, Oriel and Laing Professor of the Interpretation of Holy Scripture, University of Oxford

my recent review of your book...

If obedience is deep listening to God, then Maggie Ross's new book is a powerful, effective and understated guiding to faith and soul-truthfulness. There is a rarity, freshness in her writing. Insight, scripture, wisdom and prayer swirl around here in this challenging earthy write. You will see God clearly and more honestly than in most other places.

The sense of having wrestled with the wilderness, wanderings and wideness of humanity are striking. Repentance, tears and fire rarely get such a wise and moving exploration. Reality permeates this wonderful new BRF title. Faith and experience will be enriched should you invest in the reading of this fine book!

For the last ten years I've been sitting unseen (perhaps unbidden) right next to you as dipped our toes into a flowing stream of the sacred future. And I've made notes -- lots of 'em. But you went ahead and got yours published first and even did a classier job of it. I'm seething with jealousy!

Is it the British diet that brought this about? Must I eat mushy peas as a part of my ascetic life?

You have allowed an important light to create the pathway. Deepest thanks for your willing emptiness.

Blessings, dear heart.

Thank you, David. Bless you!

If the poet Charles Wright is ever in Charlottesville, please give him my love. I have lost track of him, though I still buy his amazing books!
