Item description for The Restless Heart: Finding Our Spiritual Home In Times Of Loneliness by Ronald Rolheiser & Paul Smith...

Loneliness may be more pervasive now than at any other time in human history. Cell phones and "instant messaging" notwithstanding, our longing for meaningful connections seems to increase in direct proportion to our accessibility. In "The Restless Heart, Ronald Rolheiser identifies different types of loneliness and discusses the dangers and opportunities they represent in our lives. Using contemporary parables from literature, film, and his own life, he shows that loneliness can be a tremendously creative and even valuable force when it is recognised, accepted, and used as a dynamic catalyst. With his trademark clarity of vision, honesty, and intelligence, Rolheiser offers a distinctly Christian approach to living an examined, involved life and presents suggestions that will free readers to discover greater meaning and fulfillment in their own lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Restless Heart: Finding Our Spiritual Home In Times Of Loneliness?

Loneliness - Our Driving Force to Heaven  Jan 15, 2007
We've all heard that there are two sides of everything. In this book, Fr. Rolheiser shows the reader that loneliness can be crippling but channeled correctly can be a creative force in one's life. I like the way he starts with defining what loneliness is, then moves on to the different causes of loneliness and the kinds of loneliness. He doesn't present a treatise on how to cure loneliness but more of a gentle leading that makes the reader understand that as human beings separated momentarily from our Creator, we will always have a touch of loneliness to be back in our forever home.

This book also offers insight on how loneliness affects even our most basic relationships like loneliness can cause overpossesiveness that drives people away instead of closer or being too eager to please can make people uncomfortable.

In the end, Fr. Rolheiser concludes that we are destined to feel some loneliness because of our separation from God but that same loneliness is the driving force that makes us reach out for Him and others.
Awesome  Mar 18, 2006
Hard to put into words the insights of this book. I have had answers to questions I have had for years about loneliness and isolation that as a christian is part of the walk. All I can say is read the book. No formulas here(ie pray more, read bible more, etc) but really helpful insights.
Cannot reccomend this book enough.
This is a great book  Aug 15, 2004
I got this book in the library, but I am going to buy it, because I liked it so much. So what, if it is a reprint. Books get reprinted for a reason. Exploring the universal condition loneliness, it goes way beyond this fashonable self-help stuff (join a social club, become a volunteer). It cuts through to the very heart of the matter. We are lonely, because we are alienated and seperated from our true nature: We are spiritual beings, we are Soul, we are a spark of God. And as long as we don't recognize our true nature, no amount of entertainment or volunteering will ease our pain. This is, what the book is about, and I could not agree more.
sentimental religion for older readers  Jun 23, 2004
This is a reprint, and it reads like one. It's over twenty years old, and I could tell. It has a very sentimental feel. My best friend read it also and didn't like it at all. He described its tone as "emotionalistic" and "effeminate". I can see why. The author tries hard to convey lots of warm and fuzzy feelings for readers, but it just doesn't seem to work. Personally, it reminds me of how my over-fifty friends talk about life; they seem to be stuck in the 1960's.
