Praise for "Consider the Ravens"
Timely, definitive, and universal, "Consider the Ravens" is a treasure Reflecting the richness, compassion, and inner peace birthed in solitude, silence, and simplicity, it invites one and all to 'taste and see', to 'be still and know, ' and perhaps, to recognize one's own hidden hermit. Highly recommended for hermits and 'wannabe's' alike.
Nan C. Merrill,
author of Psalms for Praying and Journey into Love,
editor of the popular newsletter, Friends of Silence.
This book is unique among contemporary eremitic literature because it has emerged from an ongoing dialogue over the years by committed hermits, distilled and creatively organized by a couple who themselves live the life. Hermits will find this book helpful in exploring how they fit into the surprising diversity of this hidden 'movement'. The curious will be fascinated, for the authors have comprehensively intertwined the theoretical and the practical, the dangers and the allures, the misconceptions and the surprising richness, derived from surveys among the readers of 'Raven's Bread, ' their quarterly newsletter for those of us practicing the eremitic life.
