Certain questions are common to all of us as human beings. Why was I born? What’s important in life? How do I know the right thing to do? What does it mean to 'make a difference'? What’s wrong with me — why can’t I change? Such questions are so deeply human that they transcend time and place, religions and cultures. In this inviting book, Joan Chittister presents the insights of others from different cultures throughout history who have grappled with the same kinds of life questions that plague us here and now. Through stories and wisdom literature from major religious traditions — Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam — Chittister highlights practical, universal truths and deftly shows how each spiritual tradition brings a special gift to the art of living a meaningful, spiritually aware life. A rich exploration of spirituality, Welcome to the Wisdom of the World addresses some of our most challenging issues — ambition, security, romance, abandonment, failure, and more — acknowledging the truth we can find in the wisdom of our human past and the connections we can make through our differences. This is a book for anyone who wants to grow spiritually and to become more fully human. Joan Chittister
