Seeing With Our Soulsby Joan D., O.S.B. Chittister O.S.B.
As part of her ongoing quest to break open monastic wisdom for the modern world, Sr. Joan Chittister's latest book addresses the question: What qualities of the soul must be cultivated by each of us if we are to become a positive presence in a changing world? Rooted in the ancient tradition of lectio divina - sacred reading that connects Scripture with the pursuit of personal transformation - Seeing with Our Souls highlights a key Bible passage for each of twelve key qualities of soul and offers brief reflections that speak to the core of one's spiritual practice. Each reflection asks us to identify the political, spiritual, economic, and cultural choices we make and to assess our aspirations for the future. Seeing with Our Souls is ideal spiritual reading for busy people interested in gleaning scriptural and monastic wisdom for everyday life.
