Product Description

Addressing a growing modern hunger for deep soul friendships, popular Catholic New York columnist and Our Sunday Visitor blogger Mary DeTurris Poust looks honestly but hopefully at today's culture, where people feel increasingly isolated despite the advent of myriad gadgets designed to keep them "connected." In ten practical chapters, Poust explores issues such as commitment and acceptance, the virtues that make for a lasting friendship, the importance of listening, open communication, and praying together. Readers will find here the guidance and encouragement to take the next step in developing spiritual friendships in their lives, one of the basic necessities of spiritual life.

Poust profiles inspiring spiritual friendships from the past such as St. Francis of Assisi and St. Clare, and St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal. She also examines famous contemporary friendships, like those between C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien or Thomas Merton and famous Zen master D. T. Suzuki. Each chapter concludes with "Food for Thought" reflection questions and a prayerful meditation. Paperback.

Publisher's Weekly

Catholic journalist Poust writes with simplicity and directness about spiritual friendship--the connection people can make when they trust one another with matters of the soul. It's a lot different from Facebook friending; the author defines it as "two people bound together by a love of God." She draws on a variety of writings, from the biblical tale of Ruth and Naomi to the correspondence between such sainted pairs as Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal, in illustrating the depth of such a connection. The book is well researched, though the writing is a bit prosaic. Each chapter includes questions for reflection intended to help readers explore and apply what the author presents, making it a natural for congregational groups. The material is best suited for people in liturgical traditions; the author refers to much within the Catholic tradition, including the pope, for examples. Poust's work can help readers deepen their lives. (Nov.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
