Critic Reviews

"One finishes this book with renewed gratitude--for faith and doubt, for all that is, for two wise spiritual teachers who remind us that God is present not just in the peak experiences but in the hidden depths of our everyday life." (Robert Ellsberg, author of The Saints' Guide to Happiness)

Spiritual platform for left-wing ideology

I purchased this book expecting deep spiritual teaching on the rarely written topic of gratitude to our wonderful Father.Unfortunately Joan chittisters constant references to political issues was very unpleasant. These issues have their place in other books. Drawing deep spirituality down to the political level does nothing good for these teachings. It keeps them on a surface level. Bishop Rowan on the other hand spoke deeply and on issue,With great wisdom. Unfortunately he only has a few sermons in this book. If you Joan,hated President Bush so much and the slight Marxist themes alluded to as well as other Progressive Notions ,not directly referred to but covertly referred to,perhaps it would have been more honest and less arrogant to elude that these are Gods views on these matters rather than your own ., presenting these thoughts in a more appropriate book on politics or culture would have been less manipulative. There are so few books well written on gratitude to God. I had high hopes of enjoying this listen. Shame on you Joan Chittister.

Wonderful reminiscences and great wisdom.

I got a lot from both contributors and highly recommend this audible book. There is much to be learned from both of them. Many lovely anecdotes and stories to be found here.
