Product Description

When Norris read about "acedia"---or deep indifference---in a 4th-century monastic text, she had at last found a name for her own chronic soul-weariness. In this candid memoir, she explores acedia through her marriage, life as a writer, spiritual practice, and the illness of her husband. A moving meditation on a forgotten, but relevant concept, Acedia & me was the 2009 Christianity Today Book award winner in the Spirituality category.

Publisher's Description

The extraordinary New York Times bestselling masterpiece from "one of the most eloquent yet earthbound spiritual writers of our time (San Francisco Chronicle).

Kathleen Norris had written several much loved books, yet she couldn't drag herself out of bed in the morning, couldn't summon the energy for her daily tasks. Even as she struggled, Norris recognized her familiar battle with acedia, a word she had discovered in early Church text years earlier. Fascinated by this "noonday demon", so familiar to those in the early and medieval Church, Norris knew she must restore this forgotten but important concept to the modern world's vernacular. An examination of acedia in the light of psychology, spirituality, the healing powers of religious practice, and Norris's own experience, Acedia & Me is both intimate and historically sweeping, brimming with exasperation and reverence, sometimes funny, often provocative, and always insightful.
