Essential reading for thinking Christians, 1 May 2013
A highly informative account of the nature and adoption of silence in the Western Church and the East with balanced treatment (and approval) of negative theology. The second part critically and helpfully scrutinises attempts to obscure or conceal what should be exposed. This is another of MacCulloch's magisterial books, thorough and well composed with an attractive style.
