Review: Silence and Honey Cakes: The Wisdom of the Desert

Silence and Honey Cakes: The Wisdom of the DesertSilence and Honey Cakes: The Wisdom of the Desert by Rowan Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

With its origins in the 2001 John Main Seminar held in Sydney, this book by the (now former) Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, is an absolute gem for anyone wishing to deepen their appreciation of the spiritual life as seen through the eyes of the early desert fathers and mothers.

Written in a very accessible style – you can almost hear the author speaking them aloud in his unmistakable voice – there is much insight and wisdom to be gleaned for the modern spiritual seeker. It just goes to show that not much has really changed since the days when men and women first left the cities and went out into the desert in an effort to truly live a life in relationship with the Lord.

I would highly recommend this small gem to anyone who would like to know that they are not alone in the struggles of the spiritual journey.
