      Acedia & Me - Kathleen Norris

      $5.74

      Save 75%

      Acclaimed writer Kathleen Norris explores the almost forgotten but very contemporary concept of Acedia - the phenomenon of losing the ability to care. Related to depression, acedia is in fact experienced by many and often understood as a "spiritual malaise" by Christians. This book brilliantly explores this condition, and the conditions and culture that gives rise to it and the damage it does both to the individual and society as a whole.
      An important book for anyone suffering from depression, a spiritual slough: or those who just know they are somehow "not right" in their soul.

      "Christians shouldn"t just be pulling people out of the river. We

      Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
      "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
      is for good [people] to do nothing." Edmund Burke

      What are you, as one of his followers, doing in this area?
