Radical Spirit by Joan Chittister

I have never read or heard anything from Joan Chittster, but heard that her words of wisdom were amazing. So reading the book Radical Spirit by Chittster was new territory for me. She was a new voice to hear from and I was excited because of all the great things I had heard about her.

I wanted to love this book, I really did. All the reviews and opinions I had heard said she was amazing. Now, don't get me wrong, this book was ok and worth the read. Chittster did have some great words of and imparts tidbits of knowledge that only she can give since she is coming from a convent perspective. The main subject throughout the book is about humility which I believes she can write on perfectly and is perfectly suited for.

Although there are some great insights to glean from this book, I felt it was a little redundant and mostly common sense. Things like being content with less and never ridiculing others and things. Now, there are some chapters that she addressed nicely since they might be common sense, but harder to accept like pains of development and acknowledging our faults. Those are parts of our lives that we need a little help with addressing.

Overall, this was a nice introduction to Joan Chittster and I might look into reading more from her in the future. It's also an easy and quick read, but it just might convict you to take a look within and check you on your humility.
