Editorial Reviews

“Sr. Joan Chittister embodies the triumph of hope over discouragement. A brave act of witness by a modern Doctor of the Church, this eloquent record of a long and faithful life is more needed now than ever.”—James Carroll, author, The Truth at the Heart of the Lie

“Awakenings is a story of integration, that of a prophetic woman ever seeking liberating justice for her church and her world, animated by the empowering wisdom of the Benedictine monastic tradition. This book interweaves three musical chords—the presence of God, the call to spiritual insight, and the rejection of sexism—that have sustained Joan through her long and inspiring life. No doubt, they will also sustain and empower all who draw on this rich legacy.”—Diarmuid O’Murchu, author, Doing Theology in an Evolutionary Way

“Like Hildegard of Bingen, Joan Chittister dissents by ‘daring to be herself.’ Her ‘awakenings’ depict a devoted advocate for the Divine Feminine, who urges us to move beyond compliance and conformity, listening to the voice of God within us, awake to everything and everyone around us, to forge our own nonviolent spiritual paths transforming the fruits of our contemplation into hospitable action.”—Patrick Henry, professor emeritus Whitman College
