Publisher's Summary

Between the Dark and the Daylight explores the concerns of modern life, of the overworked mind and hurting heart. These are the paradoxical - and often frustrating - moments when our lives feel at odds with everything around us. Only by embracing the contradictions, Chittister contends, may we live well amid stress, withstand emotional storms, and satisfy our yearnings for something transcendent and real.
By delving into the chaos, this audiobook guides us through the questions that seemed easier to avoid and enlightens what has been out of focus. With simple and poignant meditations, Between the Dark and the Daylight reveals how we can better understand ourselves, one another, and God.

Critic Reviews

"The paradoxes that confound life can transform it. This the most poetic writing yet from a woman who is a modern prophet." (Judith Valente, author, Atchison Blue and correspondent for Religion & Ethics Newsweekly on PBS-TV)

Deep thoughts in journal entry style

Narration was a bit sing-song with a lisp which distracted from the meaning of the words. Content was fine, but I wish I had gotten the print version because the sentence structure was complex and required more thoughtfulness in its consumption than I was able to get through the narration.

I liked The Gift of Years more.

Very good...but not as meaningful to me as The Gift of Years by Sr. Joan.
