Product DescriptionSr. Joan Chittister is a Benedictine sister, internationally known lecturer and prolific writer. Following the Path The Search for a Life of Passion, Purpose, and Joy takes a look at finding our true place in life and the problems and experiences we go through in trying to find this place. Chittister feels we all have a magnet within us "that great, deep passion for life toward which our hearts leap up at every turn". What we are to do in life is a unique question that no one else can answer for us while it is a question on which our happiness rests.
Following the Path looks at some of the things that hold us back from finding our true place while, at the same time, urging us to take steps to move forward on our journey. This is discussed in chapters entitled "The Search for Happiness and the Meaning of Life Learning to Hear the Call What Does it Mean to Have a Purpose How Do I Know I'm Doing What I'm Meant to be Doing Where is God in All of This" among others. The chapters have stories from her own personal experience and from other religions and quotes from people that range from Emily Bronte to Plato. Written in her usual thoughtful, insightful, pastoral and easy-to-read manner, Following the Path will be a helpful guide to anyone searching for meaning and purpose in their lives.
