Book - 1996
Rate this:
In interviews nicely edited into first-person narratives, American nuns discuss their life and work during the past few tumultuous decades as both society and the church have changed. Under evolving ministries they describe working in schools and hospitals, as missionaries and pastors, and serving the underserved. The attitudes they consider include encounters with Judaism, structures and fissures, and the decision to leave. They also look toward the future. Includes a glossary without pronunciation.
