Taking stock of the present moment and the challenges of the future, a host of leading spiritual writers reflect on the most pressing spiritual questions. Whether the focuses on nurturing consciousness, building community, or transforming global structures, the answers provide a road map for personal, ecclesial, and social change.
Compiled in honor of Benedictine Sister Joan Chisttister, the volume concludes with a moving autobiographical reflection by Chittister herself, “The Power of Questions to Propel.”
