Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Heart of Flesh presents a very real look at what it means to live out a feminist spirituality in a world that glamorizes violence and legitimates domination. Best-selling author Joan Chittister unmasks the effects of sexism on both men and women and describes a spirituality that makes healthier, happier human beings of us all.According to Chittister, the patriarchal culture that has shaped our world has also now brought us to the edge of destruction with its dualisms, hierarchies, and inequality. Chittister outlines the historical realities that produced this situation and describes how patriarchal culture and spirituality maintain their hold on us. She then argues that there is another way, abetter way, and introduces us to a feminist worldview that, in recognizing the full humanity of women, leads us to fresh, healthy ways of being and relating.

Synopsis:
