Publisher's summary

Building on the biblical story of Jacob wrestling with God and on the story of her own battle with life-changing disappointment, Benedictine Sr. Joan Chittister explores the landscape of suffering and hope. Meant to help listeners cope with their own suffering and disappointment, this book is, in Sister Joan's own words, "an anatomy of struggle and an account of the way hope grows in us, despite our moments of darkness, regardless of our regular bouts of depression. It is an invitation to look again at the struggles of life in order that we might remember how to recognize new life in our souls the next time our hearts turn again to clay."

Critic reviews

"As ever, Joan Chittister's voice rises up from the struggle to offer a powerful and transforming source of hope!" (Martin Sheen, actor and political activist)
"At a time when the vision and values that define us as a nation seem under siege from all directions, Joan Chittister - mystic and prophet - has given us yet another perspective on holding fast to hope.... What a comfort it is to hear these words as we struggle to make our way in a world that keeps moving away from us." (Sr. Miriam Therese Winter, author, theologian, and songwriter)
