Reviews

So many of us are tired of versions of religion preoccupied with words, guilt, exclusion, and fear. That's why a collection of daily spiritual meditations like Whispers of Presence is so welcome. It leads us into a place of peace, harmony, and connection, with a wise agent of peace and understanding as our guide.Brian D. McLaren
author/activist Christine Mallouhi draws on her rich experience of living in various human, cultural contexts - learning from their most wholesome expositors of truly, spiritual wakefulness - and mixes it with honest reflection on human woundedness and wistfulness to give us refreshing reflections for everyday living. Her quotation from Hafiz's poem (hole in a flute) is now pasted to my instrument's case to inspire me! Celtic, Ignatian, Benedictine and Sufi insights are brought to bear upon busy, practical, hungry (mostly Western) lives to offer solace, sustenance and, as the title promises Whispers of Presence.Bill Musk
The Right Reverend Doctor Bill A. Musk author and retired Assistant Bishop for North Africa & Rector of St George's Anglican Church, Tunis Every one of Christine Mallouhi's published works has helped me befriend Muslims in grace and truth. Now, "Whispers of Presence" has enriched my times of prayer and simply being with God. These meditations and prayers - some hers, some from other saints - affirm the Psalmist's declaration that "the whole world is filled with His love". This authentic, personal and deep book has re-energized my quest to be with the Lord in all things at all times.Bill Christensen,
International Ministries Pastor, Vineyard Columbus, Ohio, USA Whispers of Presence is a book that presents a series of daily reflections on spiritual aspects of life. Mallouhi describes some beautiful reflections from experiences of life that invite a deepening awareness of the presence of God in ordinary everyday events. She writes in a very evocative style that encourages us to enter the experiences with her. Her reflections are interwoven with poetry, wisdom statements and sacred texts from a wide range of spiritual writers. The stories are very engaging and point to some great spiritual practices that can be applied in a broad range of contexts. They arouse awareness of how a contemplative approach to life contributes to the development of everyday practices that form a deepening consciousness of the sacredness of life. I recommend this book as an aid to developing a personal daily contemplative rhythm in life.Rev Dr Peter Bentley

WellSpring Centre. Melbourne I read every page of this and was so very moved. Not only do I whole heartedly recommend this, I have already given it to my wife to savor. We desperately need to return to quiet reflection before God. The faster things move for us, the slower we need to get before God. What Christine does in this is to help us get still, get quiet, and reflect. There is something else I like about this a lot, I'm friends with people of many different faiths, this gives us some common thoughts from other faith leaders that allow us to have conversations. Most books make us smarter, few make us deeper people - this one does just that. Bob Roberts
