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.


What the Critics Say

"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)

I liked The Gift of Years more.

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

Love Her Perspective!

I liked this book. I like how Sister Joan teaches us to be more open minded. She shows us how to love and be loved. She brings light and another perspective on many of the issues that face our world today. There is hope if we choose to see it.
