Karen Armstrong / Timothy Allen

Karen Armstrong

Compassion

How can we be at peace with ourselves? And with others? And what is the role of religion in all of this? Through topics like self-love, attentiveness, suffering, shared joy and compassion Karen Armstrong takes the first step towards answering these and other questions.

The world-renowned thinker is particularly well-placed to tackle the fundamental questions of life. After having lived 11 years as a nun in a convent, she left the order in 1969. Armstrong studied English at Oxford and taught modern English literature in London. Through her books and lectures, she has become one of the most important voices in public debate worldwide, especially in the field of religion.
