From Orbis Books:

 Hunger for Hope is rich with Simone’s spiritual encounters with Christ . . . . The real-life engagements to which those encounters lead her couldn’t be shared with us at a better time.”—From the Foreword by Sr. Helen Prejean, CSJ, author of Dead Man Walking and River of Fire


One of the organizers of the "Nuns on the Bus" campaign shows how faith supports action in a world in great need of both. The chaotic individualism of these times demands a prayer practice that summons a prophetic response in community with those who are marginalized in our fractured economic system and broken world. Hunger for Hope explores the quest for a justice that works for all, and explores what it means to be “holy” in today’s world.

 

Simone Campbell, SSS, is the executive director of NETWORK, a nonprofit Catholic social justice lobby in Washington, DC. In 2012, Sister Simone organized NETWORK’s Nuns on the Bus campaign that has attracted an avalanche of media attention in the United States and other parts of the world. Sister Simone, a long-standing member of the Sisters of Social Service, became an attorney in 1978 and founded a community law center that served the legal needs of the working poor.
