The Silent Cry

For those who missed our recent conference or who don’t get the QUG newsletter let me recommend a wonderful book on mysticism: The Silent Cry – Mysticism and Resistance by Dorothee Soelle (2001, translated from the German, 1997). To quote from its back cover: ‘Dorothee Soelle is an activist who is also a mystic. She refuses to separate prayer and politics and stresses the redemptive possibilities in every human situation’.
