Item description for Scarred by Struggle, Transformed by Hope by Joan Chittister...

Overview
Building on the biblical story of Jacob wrestling with God and on the story of her own battle with life-changing disappointment, Sister Joan explores the landscape of suffering and hope. Meant to help readers cope with their own suffering and disappointment, this book is, in Chittister's 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Scarred by Struggle, Transformed by Hope?

Book not received  Mar 6, 2008
This book was paid for and never received. Please refund my money.

Thank you.
 
Long on platitudes; short on reason  Feb 29, 2008
Recommended to me by a former nun I much admire, I am sorry to write that I found Sr. Chittister's book tedious: very often she followed one phrase with another that repeated the same idea. Usually she did it in threes. "We find ourselves on a wet, grey slope of sliding clay, being towed under, being swallowed up and taken down, no towline to save us."

Perhaps if I were in crisis I might find her poetic phrasing a comforting and understanding expression, but I was interested in a theodicy that was rarely presented. I did appreciate her reminding the reader that nothing is permanent on earth, and if we have survived struggle in the past, we might have faith that we can survive it again.

I am very glad I borrowed this book from a library and did not buy it.
 
Scarred By Struggle, Transformed By Hope  Feb 8, 2008
This is an excellent book for people wondering about the one thing we all face, which is struggle, and how it can be transformed by hope and made into faith. As a former seminary student, I have a vast library and only a few books which are key books that I plan to keep for a long time. This one just made the list.
 
A Grace filled text  Mar 21, 2007
If you are looking for a book to help you understand the bumps and roads along the journey of life, this is the one to read. By God's Grace, the Holy Spirit has instilled wonderful insight and wisdom into each chapter.
Joan has written a book that will transform your heart.
 
If you are struggling with life, you need to read this book.  Mar 8, 2007
I would highly recommend this book to anyone going through a struggle in their lives. My wife died 5 months ago and this book has been very helpful in giving me hope that I will eventually get through the grief. I keep reading it over and over and every time find something new that touches my life and the struggle that I am going through with my loss.
