9780060657529: Dorothy Day: A Biography

From dust jacket notes: "This deeply moving, provocative, and comprehensive biography chronicles the life and times of Dorothy Day (1897-1980), co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement and a major figure in twentieth-century American life and religion. Called by The New York Times 'a very human kind of saint [who] played a seminal role in developing the social and economic thinking of a generation of American Catholics,' Dorothy Day is considered by many 'the most significant, interesting, and influential person in the history of American Catholicism' (Commonweal). Now William Miller, long-time sympathizer and friend, tells the full story of her rich, adventurous, quietly heroic life. Dorothy Day captures the 'amazing improbability' of her life: for twenty-five years she drifted aimlessly, wrestling with doubt; plagued at times by sorrow and near-despair; driven by an unfocused need to do battle with the forces she saw dominating and enslaving the world. Then, by sheer force of will and responsiveness to the experience of grace, she turned her life around to embrace an uncompromising love of God, a passionate love of humanity, and an active love devoted to building a humane community and redeeming the whole of history...."
