Editorial Reviews for this title:
Beloved author and ragamuffin Brennan Manning writes: “These souvenirs of solitude are the love story of my walk with God. Revisiting the lost silences of the past, I remember and record the intimate moments when I allowed the Lord to lure me into the wilderness and speak to my heart.” This book is a series of remembrances that Brennan recorded in the late 1970s. But as with all good remembrances, they have a timeless quality and a value for readers today. Many of the themes that God has made the indelible marks of Brennan’s life are found in this wonderful book. Dominant among those themes is the astonishing, boundless love of God for us.
The most reliable guides of spiritual formation pinpoint solitude and silence as central to the spiritual life. Now Brennan Manning in his honest, original, and winning way shares from his own experiences to prompt the reader into the riches of spending time alone with God.

We long, in these moments, to go deeper with God. We pause to wait on Him in silence. But sometimes we’d like a wise guide who can help us with this practice. In his honest, original, and winning way, beloved author and retreat leader Brennan Manning shares his wisdom, stories, and heart from his own experiences in solitude. Brennan’s meditations will prompt your own pursuit of God in the quiet places of your life.
