Our faith is full of heroes who experienced God powerfully in solitude. From Hagar and the Hebrew prophets to Jesus in the wilderness to St. Francis and Catherine of Siena, we see how escape from the toil and temptations of daily life can open our eyes, ears, minds, and hearts to the still, small voice of God. In the vast desert or a tiny room, solitude-frightening for some and a welcome reprieve for others-is far from an antisocial self-indulgence but rather is an opportunity for transformation and empowerment to serve God’s people ever more deeply.

While most of us can’t take weeks-;or even a few days-for private retreat, Holy Solitude offers readers thoughtful inspiration and practical ideas for quiet reflection and deep devotion to experience God more powerfully this Lent. Daily reflections introduce readers to figures in both Scripture and Christian history whose stories of discernment and discipline are a guide for our own spiritual practices as we seek to know God more fully and follow Christ more faithfully.

Heidi Haverkamp is a writer, preacher, retreat leader, and Episcopal priest. For ten years, she served in parish ministry in churches in Chicago and Bolingbrook, Illinois. She is a Benedictine oblate at Holy Wisdom Monastery in Wisconsin and author of Advent in Narnia: Reflections for the Season.

"The book is an invitation to learn from those who have gone before us: saints, rebels, prophets and hermits. It’s an opportunity to follow a wise guide into a more holy life equipped and fortified by simple practices."
