When God is Silent PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

When God is Silent free pdf An 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 economy 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.
