We need to develop the strength to acknowledge our faults, Sister Joan contends, to strip away our masks, seek wisdom rather than simply facts, listen more intently, and think before speaking in order to create respectful friendships, families and communities.
With twelve simple rules for healthy spiritual living derives from Rule of St. Benedict, a sixth-century book on leading a God-centered life, Sister Joan affirms the need to develop enduring values by shifting our attention to something greater than ourselves.

Joan Chittister, whom Publishers Weekly calls "one of the most well-known and trusted contemporary spiritual authors," is a rabble-rousing force of nature for social justice, and a passionate proponent of personal faith and spiritual fulfillment. Drawing on little known, ancient teachings of the saints, Sister Joan offers a practical program to help transform our thinking and rebel against our fears, judgments and insecurities.
"Freedom from anxiety, worry, and tensions at home and work, comes when we give ourselves to something greater," she argues. "We need to seek wisdom rather than simply facts, to think before speaking, and in turn create respectful communities." With a series of twelve simple rules for healthy spiritual living, Chittister not only reminds us, but pleads with us, to develop enduring values by shifting our attention to how God wants us to live. This book will teach you how to accomplish this.
"As chaos and uncertainty reigns all around, Sister Joan's invitation to the sacred power waiting for us at the depths of our spirits could not be more necessary or timely. Radical Spirit renders the most enduring ancient practices of the faith accessible, compelling and liberating for the living of these day and is one of the most helpful and hopeful books of the season." --Paul Raushenbush, Senior Vice-President for Public Engagement at Auburn Seminary
