Abstract:

"What does it mean for women to be both devoted to and in conflict with a powerful religious institution? A riveting example of feminist disobedience, Radical Grace follows three extraordinary American Catholic nuns, including Sister Simone Campbell, who plays a pivotal role in the organization of the Nuns on the bus, who faithfully honor their vow of obedience to God, even when it means angering the Church hierarchy. As modern-day feminist nuns, Simone Campbell, Jean Hughes and Chris Schenk lead very different lives, yet they are united by the common bonds of fierce devotion to their faith and commitment to the Catholic social teachings of justice, equality and freedom from poverty and oppression"--Publisher's web site.
