Reviews - What do customers think about Sisters Are Doing What?!!: Great Stories about Religious Women Today?

An insight into contemporary nunhood  May 26, 2004
Sister Regina Coll explores the lives of today's Sisters in the Roman Catholic Church. They are a far cry from the stereotypes of the Bells of St. Mary's day. Using an engaging anecdotal style, the author especially lifts up the lives of prison chaplains, ecologically inspired farmers, lobbyists for social justice in Washington, DC, to name but a few of the ministries she explores.
