    A Diagnosis and Prescription for the Restless Heart

    An amazing book that touches the central angst of the human heart through contemporary spirituality. An oasis for the restless heart.

    Touching on the finger of God in our Lives.

    Rolheiser has a great way of bringing spirituality to the level where it can be understood and applied. Through stories and metaphors he presents a well integrated look at the supernatural aspects of our natural lives.
