About the Book

The Silent Song displays a collection of poems where the author is showing another step, another level in his quest toward reaching spiritual growth and maturity. In that sense, it can be considered as a complement to what has started in the author’s previously published poetry book, Gemstone. The author uses his skills in poetry to depict a rich spiritual life where despite the tests and trials of life, one can keep his composure, tame his spirit and maintain an inner peace. One’s life always speaks louder than just his words. A silent preacher living a righteous and holy life can say more by his actions than an eloquent one that relies mainly on his words to influence people around him. Someone once said, “I’d rather see a sermon than hear one.” In this regard, may The Silent Song be an inspiration to you all. Other publications by Dr. Joël Hilaire include: On the Other Side of the Desk (2005), based on a true story Fantaisie de ma Jeunesse (2011 – French poetry) Ye Are the Body of Christ (2017), a medico-theological book Gemstone (2018), poetry
