Spirituality, like morality, has historically been tied to religion--and yet it is possible for one to exist without the other. In this meditative and highly personal account, Richard Holloway considers the nature of the spiritual, and what it means to live with the inevitability of death.

Both celebration of the possibilities that life affords and an examination of how doubts and fears too often paralyze us, especially as we age, Looking in the Distance is an inspiration, told with the compassion and good humor characteristic of its author.
