Be Still and Listen – by Amos Smith
“Be Still and Listen” explores a contemplative approach to life as the only way of cutting through the superficiality we experience around us. Author, Amos Smith reveals the contemplative dimensions of the Bible: teachings of Jesus, the wisdom of prophets, and deep understandings of the Psalms to help us find meaning in our lives.
Part One, “Entering the Desert”, introduces principals 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 past or present wounds. Part Three explores the “undivided heart” that’s possible when we come to know God in silence and stillness.
