Becoming Fully Human

Drawing from the folklore and scripture of other cultures, as well as her own monastic tradition, Sister Joan Chittister develops a spirituality that understands what it means to be human and the importance of seeing others for what they truly are-sacred. Centered around twelve questions-from "What does it mean to be enlightened?" to "How is caring for the earth spiritual?"-Becoming Fully Human reveals that no matter our color, economic or social status, or religion, we are all dealing with the same human desires, fears, needs, feelings and hopes.

Chittister's small book is rich in its implications. Highly recommended. -- Graham Christian Library Journal Characteristically, Chittister challenges the reader to seek the underlying motivation behind each [human] activity.
