Through the Narrow Gate : A Memoir of Convent Life Paperback



Through the Narrow Gate is Karen Armstrong's memoir of life inside a Catholic convent in the 1960's.

With gentleness and honesty, Armstrong takes her readers on a revelatory journey that begins with her decision, at the age of seventeen, to devote her life to God as a nun. yet once she embarked upon her spiritual training, she encountered a frightening and oppressive world, fossilized by tradition, which moulded, isolated and pushed her to the limit of what she could endure.
