The Power Of Silence

The Power Of Silence Book Cover The Power Of Silence
Robert Cardinal Sarah
Ignatius Press
Paperback and Electronic


They say that words are powerful but in his book The Power of Silence, Robert Cardinal Sarah makes a compelling case for the alternative.

Aptly titled, this is the kind of book that speaks directly to the soul of each of us, to our desire to find and know God in a time when the background of our lives is incessant noise.

From the atmospheric foreward composed by Nicholas Diat, which tugs at the heartstrings and reveals truths we cannot comprehend but through faith, until the end you cannot close the book and remain unaffected.

One quote early on in the book which instantly resonates is this: “There is no place on earth where God is more present than the human heart.”

Be still my own heart.

This book cannot be rushed, it is a booked to read slowly, to savour, and meditate upon. In it is contained a spiritual reawakening, a guaranteed growth faith and knowledge and in one’s relationship with God.

The Power of Silence has swiftly been added to our local YCM Book Club with other members chomping at the bit to open the spiritual wealth of Cardinal Sarah’s latest offering.

If there’s one book that you purchase for personal spiritual growth this year, make it this one.
