In today's society, people are turning to meditation and prayer in record numbers, pursuing the promised benefits of a contemplative life-peace, quiet, tranquility, and rest. But what about grief, restlesness, and other stirrings of the soul? In "Restless in Christ," Stockton speaks about her own experiences as a seeker and her training as a spiritual director. As she progressed on her path, she came to realize that restlesness belongs to the very essence of the spiritual life. Her insights into restlessness have helped the lives of countless seekers and teachers, and will help you too.
