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.

    Story
    "Packed with Wisdom"
    If you could sum up Between the Dark and the Daylight in three words, what would they be?

    Clear, wise, companion


    What other book might you compare Between the Dark and the Daylight to and why?

    Any books on soul stirrings


    What does Mary Ann Jacobs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice is pleasant to listen to and her diction is clear. I have the book but made greater progress with the audio version and use the book for reference.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, this book has many chapters and much to take in. However, the more I listened to it in greater chunks of time, the easier it became to follow along.


    Any additional comments?

    The title is a great metaphor for exploring the stirrings of the soul in times of interior conflict. Deciphering soul language is an art in itself. Sr. Joan brings a lifetime of wisdom to her work: so very grateful she takes the time and effort to share it in book form.
