BUYING THE FIELD
Catholic Religious Life in Mission to the World
by Sandra M. Schneiders, IHM
©2014 / Paper Cover / 800 pp.
Sandra Schneiders continues her rethinking of the traditional religious vows in the context of postmodernism, reaching back into the gospels for the meaning of “world” in order to discern the meaning of renunciation of the “world” by religious, examining the vow of poverty both in its economic and spiritual sense as well as the vow of obedience.
