Searchings in the Silence: A Series of Devotional Meditations on Prayer and the Lord Jesus (Paperback)
George Matheson discusses a range of topics pertinent to the human spirit, from the pursuit of truth to the emotions, wants and virtues of a good Christian.
Comprised of many short chapters, this work is intended to offer interested Christians an accessible way to contemplate spiritual topics. Each of the author's searchings penetrate the silence of God, shedding light upon the great questions important to all faithful. Readers will conclude each chapter thoughtful and informed.
Of particular interest to the author is the character and deeds of the Lord Jesus Christ. The personhood of Jesus, and the example He left for all humanity receives much discussion. Matheson, using his experience as a preacher and hymn writer, is able to answer the anxieties of the reader and offer clarity and insight.
The ninety-five meditations that constitute this book are each prefaced by a Biblical quotation. This verse of scripture serves as the theme for Matheson's messages and advice, and his knowledge of Biblical history, are amply demonstrated. Even simple, famous Bible phrases such as 'In everything give thanks' (1 Thess., v. 18) are explained impressively.
