"Henri Nouwen once said, “Solitude is the place of purification and transformation, the place of the great struggle and the great encounter.” Echoing this truth, Rev Dr David Wong points us to the purifying and transforming nature of solitude.

"In his down-to-earth style, in 44 devotions and four sermons, David calls for solitude in our crowded, busy and noisy world. At the same time, he cautions against the dangers of being alone. He brings key biblical truths to life and applies them to everyday life. Together with his earlier works on Waiting and Silence, this book Solitude completes a trilogy of necessary disciplines for disciples of Jesus and leaders in Christian ministry."
Watson Rajaratnam, Regional Director, SIM East Asia

"Solitude leads you to a quiet room filled with gems of wisdom. You will learn to soar with less, not more. To go farther, not just fast. To choose the better and not just the good. To talk less and do more first.

"Rev Dr David Wong, an exemplary theologian-pastor-writer, has weaved together stories of people in the Bible to show us the need for solitude for soul-searching and wise living. Each devotion ends with a prayer to bring the lesson home. I love it.

"For the past two decades, my journey as a woman entrepreneur has been a lonely one. I have often stood alone in a male-dominated business world. Yet in solitude I have found God giving me clarity and bearing. To my fellow women out there, this book is timely and destined to be a game changer.
Teresa Chen-Lim, Founder & Group Managing Director, The Language Studio, Malaysia

"In a style that is classically Rev Dr David Wong’s, this book is personal, hitting at the guts; and witty, hard to put down. Not only does it impart knowledge, it calls for transformation. I love his presentation of solitude as a tension between ‘alone’ and ‘yet not alone’ playing out in different forms: hard, necessary, unnecessary, dangerous and safe.

"We need wisdom to discern the differences among these forms, and find the necessary and safe solitude with God through Christ. This book shows us how. A must read if you want to be alone and yet not alone."
Rev Peter Lin, President, Baptist Theological Seminary; Pastor Emeritus, Queenstown Baptist Church
