Description
Philosopher, theologian, social critic, and political activist, Simone Well has become a legend of modern spiritual and political thought. Waiting for God contains her most profound thoughts on the relationship of human life to the eternal -- especially as it relates to obedience, surrender, spiritual poverty, readiness to bear suffering, and the love of God.

For many of us who try to figure out how to live our lives -- what values and beliefs to uphold, what actions to pursue -- Weil's example, achievements, and frustrations serve to focus the mind and stir the soul.

New York Times

The writings of this left-wing mystic are unmatched for surprising, sometimes shocking, spiritual insight.
