About-

City living is busy, stressful, and noisy. It generates a lifestyle of haste with an addiction to quick fixes. It feels impossible to find quiet, to rest, and to think deeply.

Our longing is to experience enduring peace, stronger relationships, and a better sense of our unique place in the world. To do so, we must hunger for life as it is meant to be—connected to its Source and maturing into fullness and fruitfulness. This requires that we become familiar with silence as a place to visit and feel at home in. For it is in silence that we encounter ourselves, others, and God in radical ways.

Let this volume, movingly told through personal narrative, help you make your way to the land of silence and be amazed at how it impacts your life as you grow in peace, patience, and passion.

Endorsements & Reviews-

From her personal experience of silence and solitude, Rev. Jenni Ho-Huan has written an engaging book that urges her readers to enter the ‘land of silence.’ The author acts as a friendly and persuasive guide who shows how silence helps us to encounter God, ourselves, and others more deeply and authentically. In the process, she offers some helpful tips and a counter-cultural way of thinking and living that fuels and fruits our pursuit of God. Using a personal and poetic approach, the author shows how the discipline of silence can be a means of grace to knowing God and self. This is a helpful book for those who live in a noisy and crowded world, with little time and space to experience ‘the life that is truly life’ (1 Tim 6:19).”

—Robert Solomon, Bishop Emeritus, The Methodist Church in Singapore



“It is apparent that this little book grows out of the deep experience of its author. Its aphoristic, catchy phrases draw the reader ineluctably into meditation. I came away much refreshed. I hope that it will get the wide dissemination it deserves.”

—Simon Chan, Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Theological College, Singapore



“In Be Still and Know, Jenni Ho-Huan takes the reader slowly, carefully, skilfully, and lovingly on a journey to unearth the treasures of silence. Surprising facets of silence emerge, punctuated with personal anecdotes narrated in a lively, authentic, and deeply spiritual voice. This little book facilitates the beginning and continuation of an unforgettable journey filled with treasures that accompany silence—getting to know who God truly is and who we really are and learning to live a life that is free, unencumbered, and uncluttered, just as the Maker intended it to be.”

—Mary Tay, Former Lecturer, Linguistics, National University of Singapore



“We will never know intimacy with God or truly understand ourselves without entering into silence. That’s why this book is so significant. Having discovered the life-changing power of silence herself, Jenni Ho-Huan offers us so many wonderful insights she has learned along the way. Read it and you’ll be informed, but above all, inspired to ‘be still and know.’”

—Stephen Seamands, Emeritus Professor of Christian Doctrine, Asbury Theological Seminary



“From the Rule of Saint Benedict to Thomas Merton, from Augustine to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Christians across the centuries have recognized that any relationship with God crucially involves silence. In Be Still and Know, Jenni Ho-Huan acknowledges that silence is scarce in the cacophony of contemporary life, but in brief, accessible, and wise chapters she leads readers to a deeper understanding of holy silence, and offers practical counsel about how we can nurture it within the demands of everyday life.”

—Donald Ottenhoff, Executive Director, Collegeville Institute for Ecumenical and Cultural Research
