25 of 25 people found the following review helpful By M. Tinker on 8 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
Those of us who practice contemplative prayer have been blessed with some fantastic books over the last few years. Martin Laird in particular has set a very high bench-mark with 'into the silent land'. This is a very different kind of book, at least in style. The charpters are short, just a couple of pages long. Each chapter addresses a different aspect or topic of contemplation. It's very simply written and easy to read. Consoling with gentle reflections and guidance on the practice of contemplation - perfect for someone new to contemplation or someone who has been practicing many years. I particularly enjoyed learning more about Saint Augustines teachings on contemplation. A lovely book that I will come back to again and again.

Format: Paperback
This delightful book dropped into my lap as a present this Christmas 2010 from someone I'd only known a little while. I picked it up with care and perused the cover. The edition I received has a tree in a field on the cover. I love rambling in nature so immediately the picture appealed and also the symbol of the tree has many meanings for me being a yoga practitioner. As is my wont with books I cherished it turning it over to read the blurb on the back cover. 'The most important journey in life is the journey inwards, to the depths of our own being. It is a journey we are all invited to make. It takes us beyond words and images into silence' These were the first few sentences greeting me. And there I had been looking at an image and reading the words. I stopped for a moment, closed my eyes and rested in the silence holding the book in my hand.

The book revealed its hidden treasure. It summarised and reinforced all the words I had read from those spiritual writers such as St Augustine, Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Thomas Merton, the author of the Cloud of Unknowing, John Main, Anthony de Mello to name but a few who have interpreted the message of Christianity. St Augustine's writings are particularly prominent as Benignus O'Rourke is an Augustinian Friar at Clare Priory in Suffolk (a retreat centre). And of course this book reinforces the source - the words of Christ in the Gospels and particularly the Gospel of John. So simply and so sweetly the author has condensed the message of the Way of Silent Prayer that Christ invited us to undertake by withdrawing to a quiet place, shutting the door and listening to God. This invitation to just 'be' with God and listening to the silence is what this book is asking of us.

42 of 43 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Peter J. Regelous on 12 Oct. 2010
Format: Paperback
My wife and I had never ever seriously tried silent prayer before purchasing this little book and it's no exageration to say that the content has made us look at and renew our prayer life from top to bottom. The Author, Father Ben, is an Augustian Friar and lives in community at Clare Priory in Suffolk and he has written an absolute classic which will help many on their road to the discovery of God within them.In short, this book is a spiritual gem and when Father Ben says the most important journey in life is the journey inwards and to the depths of our own being, his words really inspire you to want to start the journey is earnest.

We recommend this book to everybody but if you purchase it, be prepared to be challenged and changed for the better!

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. C. M. Shuttleworth on 10 July 2011
Format: Paperback
I had seen this book at a friend's house and was drawn by its title. It concentrates on exploring silent prayer with many references to Augustine of Hippo and his spiritual examens. In a world dependent on words for communication, this little book gives a refreshing insight into the world of silence and its effectiveness in understanding the life of the inner man. Each chapter is short and concise for devotional purposes but has the acquisition of inner rest and peace at its core. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking peace within and a desire to communicate with fewer words.

Format: Paperback
This little gem of a book will undoubtably become a 'classic' in the genre of spirituality / prayer.

Anyone interested in meditation (from whatever background) would find this very helpful. It is not tub-thumping from any 'religious' perspective but draws on the ancient truths distilled from the wisdom of Augustine. It is very positive and enlightening and both my wife and myself have found it invaluable in our own journey into silence.
I am now on my third reading!

Truly inpirational - thanks and God bless Fr Ben.

Format: Paperback
Find out for yourself how dynamic silent prayer is.
I was able to be taught by the master himself whilst on retreat at Clare Priory where Ben resides.
His simple technique, advocated by St Augustine, is a powerful tool to bring health to your heart and soul.
By sitting quietly in an upright position, hands gently folded in your lap for twenty minutes or so is a direct way to come into contact with God. Words are not required here, no contemplation, no thinking just settle and sink into silence. Silence is not empty it is filled with the presence of God. Someone wise once said 'God is the most present and the most invisible'.
This book is truly great in its simplicity and has inspired many to find true meaning in life.
