In his 20th book, the Notre Dame professor of theology returns to a question he asked in his first book: “If I must die someday, what can I do to satisfy my desire to live?”

“Deep rhythm then,” he writes, "the deep rhythm of eternal life, is a rest in the restlessness of the heart. . . . Wisdom is repose in God, and that is rest in the restlessness of the heart. "

The book comes with the CD Symphony of Songs, with vocals by soprano Quinn Smith Pillari, Notre Dame class of 2003, who is accompanied by Father Dunne on the piano.
