There Is A Season provides a glorious meditation in art and words on the famous passage from the Bible. Exploring timeless themes of the purpose and value of human life. Joan Chittister reflects on John Swanson's art, which in turn illustrates her text. There Is A Season shows how human fulfillment and true happiness come, not from getting and having more and more - the fancy house, the big promotion, the perfect family - but from knowing and valuing that which we have. Friendship and laughter, patience and sorrow, humility and compassion, from birth through death - all these are God's gifts to us, the precious moments of life itself.
