Beloved nun and social activist Joan Chittister, who appeared on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday, offers a soul-stirring and inspiring guide that speaks to all who feel disillusioned and dissatisfied with the power-hungry institutions and systems of this world.

Joan Chittister has been a passionate voice for women’s rights for over 50 years. Called “one of the most well-known and trusted contemporary spiritual authors” by Publishers Weekly, this rabble-rousing force of nature for social justice and fervent proponent of personal faith and spiritual fulfillment draws on the wisdom of prophets—both ancient and modern—to help us confront the societal forces that oppress and silence the sacred voices among us.

Pairing scriptural insights with stirring narratives of the truth-tellers that came before us, Sister Joan offers a compelling vision for readers to combat complacency and to propel ourselves toward creating a world of justice, freedom, peace, and empowerment.

For the weary, the cranky, and the fearful, Sister Joan’s energizing message invites us to participate in a vision for a world greater than the one we find ourselves in today. This is spirituality in action, this is practical and powerful activism for our times.

ECUMENICAL: Sister Joan appeals to believers and skeptics, Christians and universalists, and readers with a liberal point of view on religion, sexuality, politics, social issues, and evolution. This book will appeal to those progressives who are spiritual but not religious.

AUTHOR PLATFORM: Sister Joan regularly speaks and leads retreats, publishes a monthly devotional through her organization Benetvision, and writes a weekly column for the National Catholic Reporter. She is beloved by her audience, attracting strong devotion from readers.

DEVOTED AUDIENCE: Sister Joan has appeared on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday, as well as Meet the Press, 60 Minutes, BBC News, and NPR. Her work appeals to both men and women, but her following among progressive women is especially strong.

PRAISE FROM PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: Image’s three other Joan Chittister titles have each earned starred reviews from Publishers Weekly.
