Joan Chittister

Her Journey from Certainty to Faith

by Tom Roberts

Sister Joan Chittister is recognized internationally as a leading reformer of religious life, an inspiring advocate for justice and peace, and a forceful crusader for women's rights, who refused to be silenced by the Vatican. In this intimate biography, Tom Roberts reveals the interior Joan Chittister: the young survivor who witnessed years of domestic violence, who found both refuge and purpose in her religious vocation, whose brilliance produced a body of written work that will stand as one of the most profound expressions of spirituality and women's concerns of this era.
