Editorial Reviews

Review

"In accessible language reminiscent of Thomas Merton, d’Ors’s enchanting book, a bestseller in Spain, channels his Catholic spiritual heritage into a persuasive meditation guide for Western readers." —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review 

Biography of Silence invites us to stop and catch our breath. Each chapter inspires a hunger for the contemplative silence the author has come to love with such contagious affection. The word ‘God’ is mentioned only a handful of times, but few books have rendered me more vulnerable to a divine encounter. Pablo d'Ors has given us a literary and spiritual gift.” —Brian D. McLaren, The Great Spiritual Migration

"Biography of Silence is a poetic yet baldly honest account of what it means to persevere with meditation." —Lion's Roar

About the Author

Pablo d'Ors is a Spanish priest and writer. He was born in Madrid in 1963 and educated in New York, Vienna, Prague, and Rome. He was ordained in 1991 and he received a doctorate in theology in 1996. In 2014, he founded the Amigos del Desierto foundation with the aim of promoting the practice of meditation. In the same year, Pope Francis made him a consultant of the Pontifical Council for Culture. d'Ors debuted as a writer in 2000 with El estreno, a critically acclaimed collection of short stories. His essay Biografía del silencio was a publishing phenomenon in Spain, selling 130,000 copies in just a few years. Pablo d'Ors has gone on to publish almost a dozen fiction and nonfiction titles, which have been translated into French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and other languages. This is his first English translation.
