In our frantic world, we all need time to stop and breathe. But how can we nurture our inner beings when the outer world demands so much? Waiting For Our Souls To Catch Up invites readers to begin a journey of the heart and mind in which a small effort of faith, guided by reason, can yield huge spiritual dividends. From the small rituals that enhance our daily lives to the study of the historical and scriptural legacy shared by the world’s great religions, Waiting For Our Souls To Catch Up is an intelligent reader’s guide to the wisdom of the ages.
