Through the icons of Robert Lentz and the reflections of Joan Chittister, A Passion for Life presents the lives of over two dozen saints, prophets, and witnesses who speak to the urgent spiritual questions of our time. The icons in this book are male and female, Christian and non-Christian, married and unmarried, religious and lay. They are people like us. With one exception, perhaps: "In their eyes burn the eyes of a God who sees injustice and decries it, sees poverty and condemns it, sees inequality and refuses it, sees wrong and demands that it be set right. These are people who gave themselves entirely to the impulses of God for the sake of the world."
