The Eloquence of Silence Book By Sandol Stoddard

The Eloquence of Silence (2008)—“Justice is never out of date,” Stoddard writes in the introduction to this small, privately published non-fiction tome, “therefore, the following report had to be written.” While working on the novel manuscript that would eventually become Dream of Eden, Stoddard conducted extensive research into the life and character of Charles George Williamson, a 19th century Anglican priest who lived and worked in the Hawaiian Islands during a time of great change and disruption—physical, political, and religious. The Eloquence of Silence employs that research to make a historical case for the controversial Williamson as a wise, if somewhat radical for his time, young churchman determined to make a difference.
