Publisher Description:

The tiny, arid Greek island of Patmos is one of the most sacred places in the Christian world, and a place of bewitching power, where people come for a brief summer visit and end up returning, year after year, for the rest of their lives. In A Place of Healing for the Soul, BBC commentator Peter France--who arrived on the island a hardened skeptic--tells how he came to change his life perspective. Learning from the island's gregarious inhabitants and its religious eccentrics--hermits, ascetics, monks, and nuns--he discovered the pleasure and security of living simply and doing without, in a timeless realm where history, myth, and spirituality are endlessly alive.
