The Call of the Mourning Dove

How Sacred Sound Awakens Mystical Unity

Hi <<First Name>>,

Spiritual seekers across faith traditions share a fierce yearning for mystical unity with their God. While beliefs and practices differ, what ignites the human heart to quest for the mystical, the unknowable, the holy just beyond understanding, is the same.

The Call of the Mourning Dove: How Sacred Sound Awakens Mystical Unity offers a new paradigm—the Sonic Trilogy of Love—that details how sacred sound, embedded in the ancient canons across faith traditions, creates just such a portal into this unmitigated experience of God.

Because the experience is ubiquitous across faith traditions, it does not matter whether a seeker has embarked on an eclectic quest for God or remains deeply committed to questing within one particular faith tradition. All seekers, known as Lovers within the Trilogy, discover that by intoning the sacred sounds, the Love embedded in the ancient languages. Through this hearing, and this action, the conditions are set to experience unity with God, the Beloved. This unity occurs in unforeseen moments, as love, the core organizing principle of the Trilogy, circles in on itself, dissolving all distinctions, leaving the Lover filled with only the silent wonder of God.

And, graciously, nothing is the same.

Praise for The Call of the Mourning Dove

“With the ear of a poet, Stephanie Rutt has written a lovely book in both tone and content, proposing a new theological paradigm highlighting the power of the sonic realm across religious traditions. Drawing on experiences from her practice as an interfaith minister as well as research into a wide range of prayer practices that engage the “sound of God,” Rutt takes her readers on a fascinating journey and invites them to consider these practices as resources in a human quest for meaning that transcends any single tradition.”
—Jennifer Howe Peace, Associate Professor of Interfaith Studies, Andover Newton Theological School

“Stephanie Rutt’s work is an inspiring intersection of concrete spiritual practice, inter-religious learning and pastoral leadership. The Call of the Mourning Dove continues this pioneering path, in which common human modalities of sound, speech and body become avenues for personal renewal and reconciliation across communities.”
—S. Mark Heim, Visiting Professor of Theology/Yale Divinity School, Samuel Abbot Professor of Theology/Andover Newton at Yale

“Stephanie Rutt’s work on the spiritual inbreaking that takes place when one prays a prayer in its original language blends the mystical meaning of sound with the human quest for connection across times and spaces. In that way, what she creates is truly something new.”
—Sarah B. Drummond, Dean of the Faculty & Vice President for Academic Affairs, Andover Newton Theological School
