Many silent and forgotten voices are brought to life in this volume which presents the accumulated wisdom of women mystics, theologians, spiritual directors, poets, visionaries, mothers and activists over eleven centuries. Featured writers include Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, Therese of Lisieux, Bernadette of Lourdes, Bridget of Sweden, Wendy Beckett, Joan Chittister, and many more, some translated into English for the first time. Their concerns are broad ranging and they reflect on: Prayer, Family life, a woman's lot, suffering, comfort and consolation, women's ministry and its restrictions and more. All these varied voices are linked by a common thread: in every age women have sought authentic spiritual self expression. This anthology is an inspiration for all women today who are seeking opportunity to define and realise their charisma.
An excellent new resource to stand beside the well-thumbed copy of "The Virago Book of Spirituality - Of Women and Angels" on my bookshelf. An anthology of spiritual writings by women religious from the earliest times to the present day ... Themes include Community, Politics and Solidarity; Visionaries, Mystics and Contemplatives; Mothering, Healing and Family Relations.' 201112
