Sister Helen PrejeanÕs work as an activist nun, campaigning to educate Americans about the inhumanity of the death penalty, is known to millions worldwide. Less widely known is the evolution of her spiritual journey from praying for God to solve the worldÕs problems to engaging full-tilt in working to transform societal injustices. Sister Helen grew up in a well-off Baton Rouge family that still employed black servants. She joined the Sisters of St Joseph at the age of eighteen and was in her forties when she had an awakening that her lifeÕs work was to immerse herself in the struggle of poor people forced to live on the margins of society.In this honest and fiercely open account, Sister Helen writes about the relationships with friends, fellow nuns and mentors who have shaped her over the years, as well as the close friendship with a priest that challenged her vocation in the Ônew territory of the heartÕ. The final page of River of Fire ends with the opening page of Dead Man Walking, when she was first invited to correspond with a man on LouisianaÕs death row.River of Fire is a book for anyone interested in journeys of faith and spirituality, doubt and belief and Ôcatching on fireÕ to purpose and passion. Written in accessible, luminous prose, it is a book about how to live a spiritual life that is wide awake to the sufferings and creative opportunities of our world.
