Publisher's Description

Dorothy Day (1897–1980) was a well-known American journalist, activist, and Catholic convert whose cause for sainthood has been endorsed by the US bishops. She wrote numerous articles over a period of several decades for the prominent lay Catholic magazine Commonweal. Hold Nothing Back is gleaned from those writings. It includes reflections on her life as a single mother, her time in jail for civil disobedience, her struggles to keep the Catholic Worker movement she cofounded afloat, and her travels on crowded buses to report from the front lines about labor disputes, racial inequality, and poverty. At the heart of whatever Day wrote lies a profound and prophetic faith. Hold Nothing Back—a new, abridged edition of the previously published Dorothy Day: Writings from Commonweal—gives a glimpse of her remarkable humanity and endurance, and of the vibrant spirituality that underlay them.

Editorial Reviews

Dorothy Day is the relentless prophet of justice for our time. In these historic essays, she reminds us that great political action against oppression is driven by religious faith, especially faith that invites us to profound trust, to humble poverty, to doing the smallest of tasks with the greatest of loves. Day's words are charged with anger and discontent just as they are filled with the spark "that would set afire the love of men towards each other and to God." From motherhood to itinerant teacher, she is in the end, our prophet of love-"love to the point of folly"-love that is both childlike and painful, both restless and intimate, always a witness to the gospel without exception and without apology too.
