Written in an intimate, personal style, Finding Our Way Home draws on powerful insights from psychology, Christian spirituality, and theology to explore the human longing for home, a spiritual place as much as a physical place where we are at peace with ourselves and with God. Mark McMinn considers the different aspects of home as a spiritual metaphor the environment we grew up in as well as the challenges of living well within our present realities. In doing so, he addresses the yearning for a spiritual center, a deeper relationship with God, and peace in our lives.
