Illuminated Life

In stock

In this dictionary of monastic wisdom, Joan Chittister offers an A-Z of how to "be in the world, but not of the world." In her inimitable style, she eschews the quick fix in favor of a solid spiritual direction that has stood the test of time.

Each chapter is devoted to a letter that illuminates a spiritual quality to be cultivated, from Awareness to Zeal, Community to Interiority, Enlightenment to Yearning--and many more. Every illumination opens with a story from the desert mystics, and then segues into a practical application of that value to our tumultuous times.

Joan Chittister, OSB, is the founder and Executive Director of BENETVISION: A Resource Center for Contemporary Spirituality in Erie, Pennsylvania. A columnist for the National Catholic Reporter and a renowned lecturer throughout the world, she is the award-winning author of For Everything a Season, The Way of the Cross, and many other books.
