Welcome to the Wisdom of the World and Its Meaning for You

Product Description
Best-selling author Joan Chittister in this book brilliantly presents universal spiritual insights distilled from five major religious traditions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Exemplary inspiration from one of the foremost contemporary writers on spirituality. Booklist Chittister, a Benedictine nun and prolific author, here turns her attention to a broad range of spiritual authorities and traditions in order to discover and present many models of what it might mean to be a holy person. She wisely avoids any easy answers: spirituality, she assures us, does not permit quick solutions. Chittister?'s brief chapters and easy, elegant style should captivate and keep many readers. . . . Highly recommended. Library Journal (starred review) Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister . . . is a profound spiritual teacher who manages in this book to convey in very clear and easy-to-understand language the deep truths of the world?'s major religious traditions. She brilliantly puts forward her own unique interpretations, which not only bring old truths to life but really reinvigorate them by showing through her own life experience how these perennial insights can give us guidance for our own lives. This book is an embodiment of the spiritual renewal our world so badly needs. Tikkun Chittister has a talent for writing in a clear manner that is easily grasped. This book is no exception. Her use of storytelling helps readers understand spiritual traditions foreign to our own. We learn that all religions are alike in their search for the ultimate source of spiritual awakening. . . . People of all ages and cultures will profit from this book. Liguorian A probingly helpful guide to life?'s most pressing questions. . . . Refreshing. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
