This timely book of practical theology sheds welcome light into a dark corner of the individual and collective psyche and is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to un­derstand the pervasive loneliness of our times. Utilizing insights from anthropology, theology, psychology, and philosophy, Arbuckle explores the cultural causes of loneliness in both indi­viduals and societies. Topics include the found­ing mythology of the United States - with its emphasis on individualism to the detriment of the common good and poverty as a catalyst for loneliness.

Each chapter concludes with a scriptural reflection and discussion questions to guide pas­toral responses according to Gospel values.
