Here Kushner looks at the nourishment our souls crave, in much the same way that our bodies need the right foods, sunshine, and exercise.
He maintains that, without some kind of spiritual nourishment, our souls remain stunted and underdeveloped.
The spiritual life that was so prominent for people in the past is less accessible to us today -- because the world is so noisy and full of distractions, because we are so dazzled by our power and success, because religion in the new millennium is often badly packaged or presented by people we neither trust nor admire.
Kushner shows us that the presence of God in our lives can make a difference, and that modern people are capable of prayer.
