Loneliness or Fruitful Longing is for pastors, counselors, and people seeking hope for their own loneliness. It explores loneliness, its causes and its cures. It describes human vulnerability to loneliness from personal, social, and economic perspectives. It describes the impact of loneliness on physical and mental health, suicide, abortion.

It looks at social, economic, and personal strategies to combat loneliness. It visits the Orthodox Christian dialogue about loneliness in Serbia, Russia, and Greece. Finally the book proposes spiritual approaches to resolve loneliness.

Loneliness or Fruitful Longing expands on a talk originally delivered at the 20th annual Ancient Christianity and Afro-American Conference, a ministry of the Brotherhood of St. Moses the Black. It is the first volume of the Transformative Wisdom Series, bringing the timeless wisdom of the Eastern Orthodox Church into dialogue with the cumulative wisdom of contemporary psychotherapies.
