We live in a noisy world. Yet to meet the God of the Still Small Voice, it will take a quiet place, a stilled soul in order to hear, even more, to listen for the Divine to speak into our darkened void. But speak God will. Create the space. Solitude and silence are necessary gates of opportunity on the pathway to encounter. Experienced and practiced by Jesus, they are the secrets of the ancients. Most often, both are feared because it seems before we ever meet God in these sacred disciplines, we will first meet ourselves. In the silence, inner thoughts once suppressed raise their condemning tones and must be intentionally quenched before we can move further and deeper. It is because, on the other side of the fray, are the more meaningful things of the Spirit, the transformational waters of engaging spirituality. Thus, the battle is fought in the simplicity of the sequestered life, in the barren wilderness, where we are alone with God, where our adversary has lost his edge, and the victory of God's creative Voice finally breaks through to heal and make whole. Neal W. May is Founder and Senior Pastor of Faith Fellowship Church in Macedonia, Ohio, and holds a Doctor of Ministry degree from Ashland Theological Seminary. He attended Kent State University during the turbulent '60s and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a minor in education. Pastor May has experienced the balance of both Spirit and Word, illumination and reason. He is Founder and President of Hosanna Bible Training Center and instructor of Biblical Interpretation and Contemporary Preaching. In addition, he has served as an adjunct professor for Ashland Theological Seminary where he has taught Small Group Ministry, Communication and Conflict in the Church, and Archaeology of the New Testament.

The adventure continues! Perhaps setting fire to his ship in the middle of the sea hadn’t been the smartest move, but it wasn’t Drome’s fault. It wasn’t him who’d thrown the fireballs. Okay, so technically, if he hadn’t annoyed the wizard, he’d still be ineptly navigating the sailing ship instead of nearly drowning and ending up on a remote beach. But how was he to know the cranky wizard he’d upset a couple of weeks ago was aboard? Being shipwrecked in a dangerous zone populated by homicidal, but angelic looking maniacs isn’t much fun, especially when Drome’s skeletal companion is behaving so unreasonably. Perhaps he should point out it isn’t his fault there’s such a hostile atmosphere between them. An unsavoury beachcomber promises to guide them to safety in a way which turns out to be quite the opposite. Despite the setbacks, Drome hopes he and his somatically-challenged partner can stay alive. And it really isn’t fair the leaders of a town he’s passing through sentence him to death for inciting rebellion. It’s not like he deliberately sets out to upset people. Why can’t anyone see he’s trying to do the right thing? Getting back home to warn his fellow villagers of a bunch of bloodthirsty troops heading their way is important. Dammit! He needs a plan. And maybe a bit of help. But he definitely isn’t going to ask for any. Specifically, not from a certain living skeleton with an attitude problem. If you like Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, and Joe Abercrombie, you won't be able to put down the compulsively addictive Hollow series.

Too often we turn prayer into well-intentioned patterns of our own making. Too often we assume prayer is primarily about words. Sometimes there's an almost magical understanding that if we get the words right, if we trust enough or believe enough, God will "answer." But most of us know that God is not a divine magician or our own personal valet and that prayer is much more than our feeble attempts to make God pay attention to what God already knows. Using the alphabet as a template of descriptive words and actions, Holy Ground: An Alphabet of Prayer invites reflection about prayer as paying Attention, looking for Beauty, showing Compassion, practicing Devotion, celebrating Enthusiasm--all the way to the end of the alphabet and discovering Wonder, X as mystery, and Z as Zeal. These reflections will help readers experience prayer as a place, an action, or attitude, a stance for recognizing and acknowledging God's presence in the midst of ordinary life--something like the sigh of the shoemaker, too busy to drop his worn shoes and kneel in disciplined prayer, but not too busy to sigh his prayer of gratitude. Prayer is so much more than words.
