This book takes a personal approach to spirituality by exploring Jesus through his personal life and relationships. Herron focuses on Jesus' travels on the road to Emmaus, where he met many disciples along the way. By paralleling Christ's journey with our daily trials, one can discover the many dimensions of love and the one sustaining Spirit even in the most minute detail of day-to-day life. Immortal Longings serves as a guide for those who are searching and grasping for understanding in their lives and journeys. The exploratory nature of this book makes it especially appealing to college students and older adolescents.
Fred W. Herron has also published One Wild and Precious Life and Rain for Roots. He is the Religious Studies Department Chairperson and teacher of Religious Studies at Fontbonne Hall Academy in Brooklyn, New York.
