The church as an institution comes in for more than enough criticism, yet in its monastic life, it enjoys an extraordinarily high regard, far beyond the confines of the religious book trade. Consider the appeal of writers such as Wendy Beckett,Christopher Jamison or Basil Hume. This attractive new collection presents writings by women religious from the Roman, Anglican and Orthodox traditions from the earliest years of Christianity to the present day. Marked by a keen intelligence, wisdom and integrity, the writings include prayers, meditations, expositions, autobiography, spiritual advice, and comments on and recommendations for the pursuit of the spiritual life. Featured writers include Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, Therese of Lisieux, Bernadette of Lourdes, Bridget of Sweden, Wendy Beckett, Joan Chittister, and many more. 157214 Felicity Leng, ed., Felicity Leng
