If Nuns Ruled the World: Ten Sisters on a Mission

Cover: 'If Nuns Ruled the World: Ten Sisters on a Mission'

Staff Review: "If Nuns Ruled the World: Ten Sisters on a Mission" by Jo Piazza


The nuns profiled in this book are inspiring, even if you do not identify as Catholic. Piazza interviewed ten nuns who have devoted their lives to various causes, ranging from helping victims of human trafficking to challenging the use of nuclear weapons. Each nun also discusses why she decided to become a nun, and how she discovered her cause. The author, a self-proclaimed agnostic, is clearly inspired by the nuns, and her enthusiasm and passion for the project is evident to the reader. This is an amazing book that I can't wait to recommend to friends and family.
