Publishers Description Stop Breathe Listen "Be Still" In a world that moves too fast and places little value on quiet times, the practice of contemplative prayer offers rest to your soul and invites God's presence into your life. This thoughtful book, inspired by the best-selling DVD of the same name, invites you into the joy and peace that can be found in the age-old practice of contemplative prayer and features writings from some of today's most highly respected authors and speakers, including: - Max Lucado - Dr. Henry Cloud - Philip Yancey - Michelle McKinney Hammond - Richard Foster - Dallas Willard - Dr. Calvin Miller - Ken Gire In these pages you will be introduced to the practice of "lectio divina," which simply means "sacred reading." Using Scripture and silence, you will learn to invite God's presence and direction into your life through the thirty-one meditations in this beautifully illustrated book. You don't have to be a scholar or a saint to experience contemplative prayer or enjoy God's divine companionship. As you walk through these thirty-one days, you will grow daily into a deeper, more satisfying prayer life with God. Open the book. Be still. Find rest for your soul.

should be called be still so we can show you how to get in touch with the angel of light Apr 26, 2010
yes follow this book, allow them to twist scripture and trick you into going into the silence and empty your mind so you can hear the voice of not God but the god of this world who likes to appear as an angel of light. how many people wind up "hearing" this supposed voice of god and bother testing the spirit to see if it really is from god. oh they always forget to give you that warning.
this is nothing more that regurgitated repackaged new age spirituality, wrapped in christianese so you can swallow the powdered donut without knowing they put arsenic in it.
Knowing God through meditating on the Word Sep 28, 2009
I have used this treasure a few times and have given it to a number of people. I love that it equips us to be still and focus on God's Word. It is not empty meditation as in some other religions, but is focused clearly on God- Father, Son, Holy Spirit. To be able to read the Word of God is amazing, but to have it read us, through meditation on it, is extremely powerful. We live in crazy, busy, stressful times in which we need to take in the peace of Christ through His Word. This tool helps with this awesome task. Plus the simple techniques used here can be applied to other passages in the Bible. I highly recommend this book.

Learning to Listen to God Feb 28, 2009
This is a terrific devotional book. I have just finished the 31 days for the 3rd time, and I am still getting information and revelations that are helping me grow spiritually. I am learning to her God's whispers. It is terrific for helping someone slow down and listen.
