In this companion volume to her best-selling Enduring Grace, Flinders profiles the lives of four contemporary women of faith. Contending that her modern subjects are the spiritual heirs to saints and mystics such as Saint Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, and St. Clare, she draws parallels between her modern subjects and their historical predecessors. Tracing the evolution of what she terms the mother line through the centuries, she uncovers an unbroken line of succession linking the holy women of the past and the present. Fascinating enough to stand on their own, the individual stories of death-row-activist Sister Helen Prejean, primatologist and environmentalist Jane Goodall, Holocaust victim Etty Hillesum, and Tibetan Buddhist nun Tenzin Palmo serve as a collective inspirational tribute to the sacred feminine. --Booklist 187720 Carol Lee Flinders;, Carol Lee Flinders
