In exploring the Different Touch of religious life, Judith Merkle herself brings a different touch through her exploration of the vows in the light of faith, ecology, history and human development. . . . Beyond simple relevances, Merkle presents a strong case for religious life as an option in today's world. She challenges religious to live lives of committed love so that religious life may truly live on.Miriam D. Ukertis CSJ

21st Century Religious Life 11 Dec. 2013
By Barbara Moran - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This study makes Religious Life meaningful for 21st century readers, and appeals both to those who are making this life choice and those who want to discover what Catholic Sisters and Brothers are really all about. The section on celibacy seems particularly informative and relevant to today's fast changing world. Merkle writes clearly, with pertinent examples from a lifestyle which may not be widely known to some of her readers. She includes references and footnotes to other works which treat similar topics which would interest serious readers. This text is considered a classic and will no doubt be remembered asan excellent treatment of Religious Life in the first decades of this century.
