In concert with Swanson's rich and evocative art, Chittister's graceful prose explores, through this powerful biblical story, a series of twelve defining moments in every woman's life - moments of loss, change, transformation, aging, independence, respect, recognition, insight, empowerment, self-definition, invisibility, and fulfillment.
A lovely blend of art and text, The Story of Ruth offers inspiration for women seeking wholeness and presents compelling devotional images for eyes and mind alike.
Joan D. Chittister is executive director of Benetvision: A Resource and Research Center for Contemporary Spirituality in Erie, Pennsylvania.
Los Angeles artist John August Swanson is noted for his finely detailed, brilliantly colored Biblical pieces. His unique style is influenced by the imagery of Islamic and medieval miniatures, Russian iconography, the color of Latin American folk art, and the tradition of Mexican muralists.
