Editorial Reviews

"One of the most well-known and trusted contemporary spiritual authors."
Publishers Weekly

"Our Benedictine Sister Joan has gifted us with a taste of the Sayings of the Desert Fathers and Mothers. As an elder herself, she serves us with thirty-five of the more than two thousand sayings from this tradition. Her commentary provokes and evokes us to do the same: Meditate on these sayings, listen, then take action. —Sister Meg Funk, O.S.B. Beech Grove Indiana

"This book raises a weighty question: whether spirituality really has anything to do with modern life in a pluralistic world. Joan Chittister—eminently qualified to do so—answers with a resounding "Yes!" Well reasoned and powerfully convincing." —Brother David Steindl-Rast

"Sister Joan embodies the best of the Benedictine way of life: Christ-centered, earthy, and unpretentious. She offers us the wisdom she has gleaned from her life so dedicated to Justice and Joy. Her grappling with these early Church desert dwellers are hope-filled and yet challenging. Sister Joan calls each of us to a spiritual maturity that will transform the world." —Laura Swan, O.S.B., author, The Forgotten Desert Mothers and The Wisdom of the Beguines
