"In accessible language reminiscent of Thomas Merton, d'Ors's enchanting book, a bestseller in Spain, channels his Catholic spiritual heritage into a persuasive meditation guide for Western readers." -Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Biography of Silence invites us to stop and catch our breath. Each chapter inspires a hunger for the contemplative silence the author has come to love with such contagious affection. The word 'God' is mentioned only a handful of times, but few books have rendered me more vulnerable to a divine encounter. Pablo d'Ors has given us a literary and spiritual gift." -Brian D. McLaren, The Great Spiritual Migration

"Biography of Silence is a poetic yet baldly honest account of what it means to persevere with meditation." -Lion's Roar
