New Book: When God Is Silent
When God Is Silent
Benedict Groeschel. This book is a wonderful spiritual resource.
Those who may be confused and desolate by God's apparent lack of response to their prayers of petition, will discover an extremely provocative and efficacious answer for God's "silent act" in our lives. I have read this book twice and each time I have experienced a more heightened awareness of God's plan for me. I have come to enjoy the practice of "silence" in my daily life.

I was profoundly changed by this book. It is a short, but certainly not easy, read, for I could only take a few paragraphs per day in order to fully digest each segment's meaning.

All of us have experienced some sort of desert moments in our interior lives, but Martinez illuminates the grander purpose of God's seeming absence, which is really a deeper infusion of His presence, within us. The theology of Jesus sleeping and the interpretation of that theology was life-changing for me. Moreover, Archbishop Luis Martinez explores - in a rather mystical way - how Jesus sleeps in our hearts. We seek God, but in return only sense His silence. And this silence can be difficult, even frustrating.

Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. God most often chooses to speak in subtle ways. So tune into the ways He may already be speaking to you by making an effort to notice Him in your ordinary moments.
