[Image: The Art of Life: Monastic Wisdom for Every Day]

The best of ourselves. That’s what Joan Chittister wants each of us to find and become. Through brief daily reflections, the bestselling author looks to great works of art for inspiration, bringing the monastic perspective to the brushstrokes of masters like Van Gogh, Cezanne, Millet, and more. Each art masterpiece—one for each month of the year—is reproduced in full, lustrous color, and is accompanied by Sister Joan’s meditations on life, the soul, and the search for fullness of self in a modern world. This stirring and inspiring collection is full of the wisdom, wit, encouragement, and advice that have made Sister Joan one of the great spiritual writers of our time.
