    Using a simple philosophical discourse, this book offers a new 
understanding of the idea of Revelation. It is available to everyone, not just to priests and prophets. It can push back the frontier of loneliness, and render life meaningful and beautiful and worthwhile. It has four simple but far-reaching principles:   "I am here; this is what I am; and what I am is beautiful! 
Is anyone else out there?". "I am here; this is what I am; and what I am is beautiful! 
Is anyone else out there?".
 
As if washed through by a rain storm,
this short book sparkles and glints with
 clarity, honesty and beauty. For those who
  have dedicated their life to the search for
 truth and the experience of the sacred,
 these are issues gently and thoughtfully
 handled. It is no self-help book; it is more
 intelligent, subtle and respectful of the
 reader. Each of the 45 pieces, particularly
if taken as daily meditations, are valuable
provocations to deep thought and inspired
consideration. A valuable piece of work.

Loneliness, like old age and death, is a taboo
 subject in our neophilic culture that worships
 youth and surface at the expense of depth
 and experience. Brendan Myers, in this
thoughtful and eloquent book, travels to the
heart of the existential issues that underpin
the experience of loneliness. In doing this, he
 reveals the potential that loneliness holds for
each of us to realize our full humanity.
Instead of being an experience to avoid at all
costs, this book shows how it can act as a
gateway that can help us deepen our sense of
being alive.

Brendan Myers in his probing Forty-Five Meditations 
on Loneliness and Revelation: A Study of the Sacred explores the absolute uniqueness of each individual as 
part of the existential solitude of human life. This 
inquiry into isolation and separation as a life-affirming 
good begins interesting and steadily becomes more 
interesting. Both lightly personal and philosophically 
penetrating, the author cogently argues that, beyond 
the superficial diversions we employ to distract ourselves 
from fear, insignificance and meaninglessness, there is 
the ‘Revelation’ of presence and identity. This avowal 
concerning the goodness and beauty of life is ultimately 
an act of personal will – one that challenges the reader 
to examine, direct and even change her or his life. More 
than just another vitally important book, Myers’ analysis 
confronts our very raison d’être against our uncertain 
times. He asks the questions that most prefer not to ask.
