God's Tender Mercy
Number of pages: 80
Sister Joan Chittister approaches difficult and mysterious concepts and ‘breaks them open’ for us.
In God’s Tender Mercy she tackles the virtue of mercy and its vital connection to forgiveness. She challenges us to stop judging, accusing, and criticizing those we label ‘sinners’ and to see ourselves in their number. She invites us to be realistic about our own actions before we ‘throw that first stone’ at another.
Sister Joan’s insights invite all of us to seek holiness through receiving and then offering God’s tender mercy and forgiveness to one another. In doing so we become holy. There is no other way.
This challenging and inspiring book is spiritual reading at its very best.
