Some brief overview of this book

In this provocative work, Lucy Kaylin explores myths and debunks stereotypes to present a rich and varied portrait of modern nuns at a dramatic moment in their history: Nuns in the United States are facing possible extinction.

In vivid, accessible prose, For the Love of God examines the historical and cultural forces - including the Second Vatican Council and the women's movement - that have redefined nun's roles while eroding their ranks.

Here is a range of strong and surprising women wrestling with the central issues of their callingissues common to secular women as well: commitment, sexuality, sacrifice, politics, and work. For the Love of God introduces nuns who swear, smoke, and run inner-city shelters; elderly nuns who have been imprisoned for their political beliefs; habited nuns who choose to devote themselves to the cloistered life. Speaking from both heart and mind, these women share their opinions on abortion, birth control, the ordination of women, the Church's patriarchy, Pope John Paul II, and more.

During this time of widespread spiritual longing, this compelling, emotionally charged book will resonate with many people of all faiths.
