Product Details

Joan Chittister is one of the most popular inspirational writers today. In her book, A Passion for Life Fragments of the Face of God, she presents biographies of over two dozen saints, prophets, and other witnesses who speak to the spiritual questions of our time. The biographies include:

  • Rumi: The Icon of Wisdom
  • Benedict and Scholastica: Images of Hope
  • Simone Weil: Icon of the Face of Truth
  • Martin Luther King, Jr: The Icon of Light in Darkness.

In A Passion for Life, the biographies include not only the story of the life of the person but how that person forces us to look at our world around us and our faith today in light of what they experienced and the examples they present. The stunning icon images that are presented in A Passion for Life with each biography were done by Robert Lentz, a Franciscan friar who is one of the best-known contemporary icon painters in North America. The people presented are male and female, married and unmarried, Christian and non-Christian, people just like us but people who confronted issues like poverty, injustice and inequality occurring during their lifetime and felt they were called to address the issues. Through their lives they show us how to also confront these issues as they occur in our lives today.
