An examination of spirituality, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of 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.
A profound meditation on spiritual tolerance . . . A truly wonderful book by a man who has the courage to doubt * * Observer * *
A poetic and moving humanist view of life . . . Holloway exhibits a combination of erudition, compassion and wisdom * * Guardian * *
This is exhilarating and inspiring stuff, but it is in his last section, 'Leaving', that Holloway hits the sweetest, highest, saddest notes on his trumpet -- BEL MOONEY * * The Times * *
Beautiful. A rather important book -- DEBORAH MOGGACH, author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
