This work discusses the spiritual journey of a man who abandoned his notions of material success to embrace a course of unworldly prosperity through solitude and reflection. The author retired from college teaching and developed a spirituality and personal theology that became, for him, a viable alternative to modern materialistic values. Solitude demonstrates the possibility of being transformed by love, and the strength found in acting through God's will. While living largely in solitude, Hough has established himself in his community as a loving man of faith who has tempered a life of active service with a life of contemplation. This book is useful to members of the clergy who guide others in their spiritual education, and as reading for theological academics and undergraduate students of religion.
