The authors of The Longing for Home explore the notion that home is both a place and a conditon of the spirit. While a person may have a place that is home, he or she may also be nostalgic for an inner spiritual home which beckons even as it lies beyond the human grasp. Essays by Elie Wiesel, Werner Gundersheimer, and Frederick Buechner complete part one. Part two focuses on philosophical explorations of the meaning of home.

Leroy Rouner was a philosophy professor for over 30 years years at Boston University.Review:
"Rouner introduces the volume with a masterful attempt to bring together and summarize the themes and issues that emerge from the contributions of these distinguished essayists." --Journal of Religion
"This volume continues the practice of earlier volumes in this series: illuminating issues routinely overlooked by professional philosophers and religious thinkers. In this collection, the editor gathers together the reflections of a distinguished group of thinkers on the multilayered meanings of home. The selections are eclectic and as wide-ranging as the nuance inherent in the subject, but something provocative should be available to any reader." --Religious Studies Review
