THE MONASTERY OF THE HEART Bestselling author Joan Chittister delivers a road map based on the ancient Rule of Benedict that stands as a practical model upon which to build a satisfying life, despite the seemingly limitless and, at times, meaningless supply of options in the modern world. By giving spiritual seekers—individuals, couples, families, and small groups—a new opportunity to live a better life from the very center of their world without ever having to withdraw from it, Chittister’s new approach redefines Benedictine living for modern-day seekers while remaining firmly rooted in its monastic values.

SONGS OF THE HEART Joan Chittister 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.”
