"Many times I had to lay it aside my desire to share int he author's experience of meditation became intense in the reading". -- James McFeely, Parabola

"Kelsey offers a down-to-earth manual demonstrating the possibility of encounter with God". -- Christian Century

Twenty years ago, The Other Side of Silence was published, the first book to join Christian meditation with Jungian psychology. Selling a phenomenal 130,000 copies, this formative book rescued a whole generation that "could not meditate" and showed it how to pray. While other volumes have gone on to cover the same territory, Kelsey's book remains undisputedly the most important. This revised edition incorporates the remarkable insights of Kelsey' additional twenty years of wisdom, twenty years of practicing meditation, and the wealth of knowledge behind the dozens of books he's written since then. It is a tribute to his entire career.
