520 "Following the death of his little sister and the
publication of his New York Times bestselling memoir The
Little Way of Ruthie Leming, Dreher found himself living
in the small community of Starhill, Louisiana where he
grew up. But instead of the fellowship he hoped to find,
he discovered that fault lines within his family had
deepened. Dreher spiraled into depression and a stress-
related autoimmune disease. Doctors told Dreher that if he
didn't find inner peace, he would destroy his health. Soon
after, he came across The Divine Comedy in a bookstore and
was enchanted by its first lines, which seemed to describe
his own condition. In the months that followed Dante
helped Dreher understand the mistakes and mistaken beliefs
that had torn him down and showed him that he had the
power to change his life. Dreher knows firsthand the
solace and strength that can be found in Dante's great
work, and distills its wisdom for those who are lost in
the dark wood of depression, struggling with failure (or
success), wrestling with a crisis of faith, alienated from
their families or communities, or otherwise enduring the
sense of exile that is the human condition. Inspiring,
revelatory, and packed with penetrating spiritual, moral,
and psychological insights, How Dante Can Save Your Life
is a book for people, both religious and secular, who find
themselves searching for meaning and healing. Dante told
his patron that he wrote his poem to bring readers from
misery to happiness. It worked for Rod Dreher. Dante saved
Rod Dreher's life--and in this book, Dreher shows you how
Dante can save yours."--Amazon.com
