This work speaks of the challenges of religious life today where the essentials of Christian living and union with God are sought with a different touch. Reflecting on the history of religious life since the nineteenth century, Sister Judith comments on how each of the traditional vows shape the ongoing adult development of a religious, and she related these vows to current cultural and sociopolitical issues. A Different Touch is addressed both to those in religious formation and to congregations that are engaged in theological renewal.

"A Different Touch" speaks of the challenges of religious life today where the essentials of Christian living and union with God are still sought via a "different touch". The book looks at the relationship of Christian lifestyle and the place of religious life in the matrix of Christian living, and then comments individually on the traditional vows of religious life. A section on "new times" for poverty, obedience, and celibacy relates each vow to current cultural and socio-political issues.
