Songs of the Heart
Songs of the Heart is a new edition of the best-selling 25 Windows into the Soul.
In her introduction, Sister Joan Chittister writes: "The psalmist is poet and wisdom figure, balladeer and historian of the human struggle for God." What an apt description of Sister Joan herself! In this new book, she breaks open the psalms for us, those ancient songs that have been prayed by ordinary people for centuries. As usual, Sister Joan's language is fresh yet steeped in tradition, piercing yet tenderly nuanced. The topics she has chosen are universal, contemporary, timeless. Her "soul points" and "wisdom stories" are unforgettable. Her suggested activities run the gamut of profoundly daring to just plain fun. This book, like the psalms themselves, is meant not merely to be read, but to be entered into. It belongs to all of us who call ourselves "human souls in progress."

God's Tender Mercy
Sister Joan Chittister is a bestselling author for a very good reason. She takes difficult and even mysterious concepts and “breaks them open” for us. Here she tackles the virtue of mercy and its connection to forgiveness. She feels strongly that most of us don’t understand either mercy or forgiveness and don’t offer them enough to others.
She challenges us to stop judging, accusing, and criticizing those we label “sinners” and to see ourselves in their number. She invites us to be realistic about our own actions before we “throw that first stone” at another.
This is spiritual reading at its very best. Sister Joan’s insights invite all of us to seek holiness through receiving and then offering God’s tender mercy and forgiveness to one another. In doing so we become holy. There is no other way.
