Overview

In Enduring Lives, the sister volume to her bestselling classic Enduring Grace, Carol Lee Flinders draws riveting portraits of women who are the spiritual great-granddaughters of the female mystics and saints profiled in Enduring Grace. Tracing the spiritual "mother line" of these holy women of centuries past-Julian of Norwich, Saint Catherine of Siena, and Saint Catherine of Genoa-to contemporary women whose lives have been lived with a similar passion for and dedication to improving the human condition, Flinders explores the spiritual journeys of:

- Jane Goodall, a world-renowned scientist, environmentalist, and humanitarian, whose groundbreaking work runs parallel to a deeply realized spiritual vision for our times.
- Etty Hillesum, a Jewish intellectual in Amsterdam who documented in her diaries an abiding vision for the eventual triumph of human good over evil, even as she faced the horror of Auschwitz.
- Sister Helen Prejean, a Roman Catholic nun who befriended death-row inmates and accompanied them to their ends with the grace of her certainty that "God dwells in the people that we most want to throw away." (Sister Helen Prejean was portrayed by Susan Sarandon in the Oscar-winning film Dead Man Walking.)
- Tenzin Palmo, a Tibetan Buddhist nun, whose twelve years of meditation in a Himalayan cave led her to emerge with a road map for ending human suffering.

With these fascinating profiles of four contemporary women of faith, Carol Flinders illuminates the heart of the feminine sacred and provides inspiration for female spiritual seekers everywhere.

Author Biography: Author of EnduringGrace and coauthor of the legendary vegetarian cookbook Laurel's Kitchen, Carol Lee Flinders lives in Northern California.
