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.

    " There are true words of inspiration in those pages! This book helped clarify what I've been feeling for years, that which I could not put into words myself. I praised God all by myself when her words reflected what I deal with right now!! Excellent read... "
