One of the best books I have on spirituality. Joan Chittister is one of my favorite authors and to hear her give the lessons in the book is very special to me.

The presentation makes me feel like we are sitting together in a nice lounging area and she teaching a small group the lessons in this wonderful book.

Thank you Joan Chittister for such a wonderful and inspiring book that you wrote and performed.
