  • The Power of Silence: Against the Dictatorship of Noise
  • A follow-up to the bestselling book God Or Nothing
  • A guide for the modern-day Catholic who is surrounded by noise
  • Profound, encouraging, and beautiful

In a time when technology penetrates our lives in so many ways and materialism exerts such a powerful influence over us, Cardinal Robert Sarah presents a bold book about the strength of silence. The modern world generates so much noise, he says, that seeking moments of silence has become both harder and more necessary than ever before.

Silence is the indispensable doorway to the divine, explains the cardinal in this profound conversation with Nicolas Diat. Within the hushed and hallowed walls of the La Grande Chartreux, the famous Carthusian monastery in the French Alps, Cardinal Sarah addresses the following questions: Can those who do not know silence ever attain truth, beauty, or love?  Do not wisdom, artistic vision, and devotion spring from silence, where the voice of God is heard in the depths of the human heart?

After the international success of God or Nothing, Cardinal Sarah seeks to restore to silence its place of honor and importance. "Silence is more important than any other human work," he says, "for it expresses God. The true revolution comes from silence; it leads us toward God and others so as to place ourselves humbly and generously at their service."

    The Power of Silence

    Empowering, insightful, honest, and encouraging. It has many great observations and directives for surviving and thriving in our very loud, distracted world.

    God or Nothing

    A powerful book about faith...difficult to put down, but enjoy closing the pages to then contemplate his observations and insights.

    I've just the book this past weekend; knew a little bit about it prior to purchasing it. However, what was surprisingly, that the priest who was conducting our Lenten Mission, this past week, was the using/referencing this book, as part of his theme. I'm glad I listened to my guardian angel in purchasing this beautiful book.

    I received this book and am not finished with it - but it is one of those books you can just pick it up and contemplate any of the passages all the time - love it!
