Praise for Be Still and Listen:
“Amos Smith’s unique voice is rooted in his long-term centering prayer practice and his international background. Be Still and Listen is a trumpet call to the inner treasures of contemporary Christian mysticism.”
–Richard Rohr, author of Falling Upward
“In a lively, accessible, and masterful style Amos Smith unveils the mystical foundations of Christianity and the spiritual wealth found in Scripture.”
–Kyriacos Markides, author of The Mountain of Silence
“Be Still and Listen will be a refreshing companion to your spiritual journey, helping you deepen your capacity for presence of being, assisting you to live in the here and now, and guiding you along the mystical path with Christ.”
–Phileena Heuertz, author of Pilgrimage of a Soul
“Amos Smith’s mystical writing builds bridges between Eastern and Western Christianity.”
–Abba Yohannes, Ethiopian Orthodox monk
“Be Still and Listen has made me think deeply about my own spiritual life and practice. I am confident that this important book will have a similar impact on you.”
–Dale Hanson Bourke, author of Embracing Your Second Calling
“Amos Smith reminds us that the path of centering prayer and Christian mysticism is not a race. It’s a marathon. As many Scriptures attest, our relationship with God requires patient waiting in stillness and silence, day after day, month after month, year after year. The marvel is that in time God will transform us!”
–Rich Lewis, author and centering prayer workshop leader
“Our hearts hunger, our souls thirst, for the freedom and spiritual life that existed in the Garden—of walking close to God in the cool of the evening and being whole. Amos Smith shows us how we can recover a portion of that in our interior lives now.”
–J. Brent Bill, Quaker author of Holy Silence
