Beloved author and ragamuffin Brennan Manning writes: "These souvenirs of solitude are the love story of my walk with God. Revisiting the lost silences of the past, I remember and record the intimate moments when I allowed the Lord to lure me into the wilderness and speak to my heart." This book is a series of remembrances that Brennan recorded in the late 1970s. But as with all good remembrances, they have a timeless quality and a value for readers today. Many of the themes that God has made the indelible marks of Brennan's life are found in this wonderful book. Dominant among those themes is the astonishing, boundless love of God for us.
