Looking in the Distance: The Human Search for Meaning

About the book: 
An examination of spirituality, from the  Sunday Times  bestselling author of  Waiting for the Last Bus  and  Leaving Alexandria .
Spirituality, like morality, has historically been tied to religion - and yet it is possible for one to exist without the other. In this meditative and highly personal account, Richard Holloway considers the nature of the spiritual, and what it means to live with the inevitability of death.
Both celebration of the possibilities that life affords and an examination of how doubts and fears too often paralyse, especially as we age,  Looking in the Distance  is an inspiration, told with the compassion and good humour characteristic of its author.
