Silence, Solitude, Simplicity:

By Hall, Sister Jeremy

"We all need God," Sister Jeremy says in her first sentence, and readers of all sorts will find here a warm and practical address to that need. The monastic way is not forsaking the world, but for the sake of the world, and Sister Jeremy's Benedictine wisdom is fundamental human wisdom. Her book is the fruit of decades of practice, and the spiritual journey she recounts is nobody's but hers- which makes it, paradoxically, something from which everyone can learn. "I did" is much more effective teaching that "one might" or "you should." There is nothing musty, cobwebbed, or nostalgic in these pages. Sister Jeremy, in her late 80's, is totally alert to the world around her and within us. She is allergic to sentimentality. Because she has spent so much time in silence- living as a hermit for 20 years- she is especially attentive to words and how like a chameleon they can be. Every sentence glows with her graceful, witty, and hospitable spirit. She is an inspired teacher, a trustworthy guide, one of God's great ones.
