Nuns

Host Lisa Simeone talks with Lucy Kaylin, author of For the Love of God: The Faith and Future of the American Nun. Kaylin interviews a wide range of women who live as nuns and chronicles their shift from cloistered to active communities within society. Although nuns are a mixed lot who work in most corners of the world, their numbers, in this country at least, are diminishing.
