This was a great book. I think it is one everyone should try to read at least once.
Rolheiser seems to write the book almost in the form of a journey of faith. The first part defines loneliness in the secular terms: what is; its dangers; and the various types of loneliness. The second part brings it in to a matter of faith: how it is found in scripture and some theologians writings.
He shows how loneliness is always with us that it is the cry of the heart for God. We read how we can transform our loneliness from a stumbling block to a stepping stone. It is realistic and thought provoking. He doesn't claim to know all the answers or have the ability to cure our restless hearts. That is left up to our choice. This book helps to bring those choices into a sharper focus.
