Silence used to be the norm, but in the last 50 years it has become the exception; now we have to create a special time and place to experience silence...and "still the constant noise" that surrounds us. And if we want to grow in our walk with the Lord, it's crucial that we do so. For those who long with all their hearts for more than a Sunday only kind of Christianity, but don't know how quite to start, this DVD has some wonderful guidance, that will spark the light within you.
Jesus is the core and substance of this documentary, and His Word the source. I fail to comprehend the Pharisaic mentality that would find the teaching in this DVD to be heretical, but as Quaker author Richard Foster says, "It's much easier for people to debate the Bible than to submit to it." All the teachers, pastors, and authors interviewed for this documentary have wisdom to impart, making this film a good investment of your time.
"Be Still" is not only a good source for those seeking to learn on their own, but would also be an excellent tool for small study groups to use, and for pastors and Bible teachers as well. One of the 7 chapters of the DVD is on "Small Groups," and gives ideas on how to use contemplative prayer in a gathering of believers.
WARNING: The DVD has a very peculiar set-up. My only complaint of this documentary is that it does not have a "Play All" option, and one must keep the remote close at hand. The 1st chapter is approximately 55 minutes long, and has a long list of credits after it, making one think that "this is all there is," and stop the DVD. Wrong! There are about 40 minutes more in the subsequent 6 chapters.
