In the Heart of the Temple: My Spiritual Vision for Today’s World
Joan Chittister has been one of America’s key visionary spiritual voices for more than thirty years. “In the Heart of the Temple” brings together for the first time her most powerful, influential, and celebrated writings. Passionate and provocative, this collection combines the spiritual practices of the Rule of St. Benedict with the contemporary struggles for social justice, feminism, and ecology. Chittister addresses today’s most pressing moral, political, economic, environmental, and spiritual questions, and challenges individuals of every religious and political persuasion to unite in a new and bold vision through which we learn to honor the earth, its people, and all of life. “In the Heart of the Temple” is Joan Chittister’s prophetic manifesto for the preservation of our world!
