About this product
- DescriptionAn enduring classic from award-winning writer Barbara Brown Taylor, and a timeless meditation for all who thirst for a God who often seems to be silent. It considers the limitations of the language we have at our disposal to speak about God; the stupendous responsibility upon anyone who attempts to speak for God, in preaching or pastoral encounter; and the torrents of words coming at us from all directions in contemporary culture that can drown out the messages we really need to hear. In this land of linguistic superabundance, Barbara Brown Taylor argues persuasively for simplicity and ecomy when speaking of God. She reflects on the eloquence of Jesus' silences and how we can find ways of bringing tired, old language about God back to vivid, powerful life.
- Author BiographyBarbara Brown Taylor is a priest in the Episcopal church and the author of numerous books which have been showered with awards, including the bestselling An Altar in the World and Leaving Church. She currently teaches Religion at Piedmont College, Georgia and is on the Board of Advisors of Yale Divinity School.
