Author, journalist, and speaker Mary DeTurris Poust examines rich and nurturing examples of spiritual friendship from well-known saints, writers, and modern religious leaders who serve as exemplars for cultivating meaningful relationships in a world of Twitter and Facebook. Addressing a growing modern hunger for deep soul friendships, popular "New York Catholic" columnist and "Our Sunday Visitor" blogger Mary DeTurris Poust looks honestly but hopefully at today's culture, where people feel increasingly isolated despite the advent of myriad gadgets designed to keep them connected. Reflection and discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this a useful resource for small groups, moms groups, and for spiritual direction.
