Currently, no "sign of the times" requires greater attention from the Church and contemporary theologians than the rapidly developing complex of life-changing events summarized in the term "virtual reality." Immediately it is necessary to ask: what is virtual reality? How much does it already pervade daily life? Perhaps the most significant theological questions of the present decade derive from one that is very fundamental: How does "virtual reality" pertain to the divine realities of faith revealed in Jesus Christ?

Why write a book on restlessness? Isn't it obvious that in this present time we are experiencing a restiveness that is eating away at the heart of faith, culture, the very meaning of humanity? For that very reason it is important to focus on the difference between positive restlessness and forms of restiveness that are destructive.
Prokes graduated from Marquette University with a bachelor's degree in 1962 and received her master's degree from it in 1967. She then obtained her doctorate from the University of St. Michael’s College in Toronto in 1976.

As an educator, she started her career at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, where she held the position of a teacher of religious studies from 1976 to 1981. She then served as a visiting scholar at Kroger International University, Concordia University and Lonergan University College for the next 2 years.
