';There is a part of the soul that stirs at night, in the dark and soundless times of day, when our defenses are down and our daylight distractions no longer serve to protect us from ourselves,' writes beloved author, Joan Chittister. ';It's then, in the still of life, when we least expect it, that questions emerge from the damp murkiness of our inner underworldThese questions do not call for the discovery of data; they call for the contemplation of possibility.'In words as wise as they are inspiring, Between the Dark and the Daylight explores the concerns of modern life, of the overworkedmind and hurting heart. These are the paradoxicaland often frustratingmoments 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, andsatisfy our yearnings for something transcendent and real. By delving into the chaos, this bookguides us through the questions that seemed easier to avoid and enlightens what has been out of focus.With her signature elegance, wit, and spirit, the bestselling author ofThe Gift of YearsandFollowing the Pathopens our eyes and hearts in these times of confusion. With simple and poignant meditations,Between the Dark and the Daylightreveals how we can better understand ourselves, one another, and God.From the Hardcover edition.
