Using Ecclesiastes as a map for the journey, Morrow gives us a vision of our disenchantment "under the sun" and suggests that human cultureour work, art and playgives evidence of another reality for which God created us.

" Yearning for More uncovers the reality of God in the most unexpected places. Barry Morrow cleverly identifies 'signals of the transcendent' in our hatred of death, our desire for heaven and even the humdrum of daily living. So often we are told to 'go with your gut.' Morrow takes this to a whole new level. You will relish the guilty pleasure of feeling more and knowing less. Take this book and read it slowly as you begin to see God's presence in your all-too-human hopes and fears."
" Yearning for More is not to be missed; recommended for church libraries and for study groups."
