Religious life is not a naïve utopia but a commitment to live in the gap between vision and reality, the already and the not-yet, the place where human relationships are deepened in the midst of human frailties. This is a well-written and thought-provoking book which will raise questions for some and provide insight for many. Living in the Gap offers a wise and spiritual foundation for those seeking the pearl of great price. --Sr. Ilia Delio, O.S.F., Senior Fellow, Woodstock Theological Center
The book is an excellent tool for the initial and ongoing formation of religious women and men, as well as a reliable voice for all those who want to understand better how this religious life is to be lived today. --Archbishop Joseph W. Tobin, C.Ss.R., Former Secretary, Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life
From the Inside Flap
The challenge before religious today and before all those called to evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty, and obedience is to do their best to narrow the gap between vision and reality. The question they should be asking themselves is not whether the gap between vision and reality exists in their lives, but whether it is getting larger or smaller.
