How do you follow Jesus without burning out? Gold Medal Winner, 2018 Illumination Book Awards, Enduring Light "This thoughtful collection of Day's reflections incorporates abundant material for contemplation, all drawn from her extensive writings ... [which] reveal Day's signature honesty and frequent humor in addressing her hopes and fears and the sources of her inspiration.... This welcome compilation provides a window into the fundamental beliefs that undergirded Day's life of faith." --Publishers Weekly, starred review In this guidebook Dorothy Day offers hard-earned wisdom and practical advice gained through decades of seeking to know Jesus and to follow his example and teachings in her own life. Unlike larger collections and biographies, which cover her radical views, exceptional deeds, and amazing life story, this book focuses on a more personal dimension of her life: Where did she receive strength to stay true to her God-given calling despite her own doubts and inadequacies and the demands of an activist life? What was the unquenchable wellspring of her deep faith and her love for humanity?

MEDIA REVIEWS
If you have any degree of devotion to, affection for, or interest in Dorothy Day, The Reckless Way of Love is a must-have addition to your library. The selections are carefully, even prayerfully chosen and meticulously organized. --Mark Gordon, The Dorothy Option, Patheos.com
Day was no saint: she was "an ordinary person simply trying to walk the road of following Christ." This is precisely why her reflections on following Jesus are worthy of study. --Christian Century
In his speech to Congress during his 2015 visit to the United States, Pope Francis held up Dorothy Day as an example of the selflessness needed today, saying, "Her social activism, her passion for justice and for the cause of the oppressed were inspired by the gospel, her faith, and the example of the saints." In "The Reckless Way of Love," a compilation of her writings, Day expounds on the driving force behind this love of service: her persistent faith in God. --Our Sunday Visitor
Saints are not like the rest of us, but the Dorothy Day in these pages is. Her reflections leave one wondering whether what made her so fascinating was that she took the simple teaching of her faith at face value and to heart. --Library Journal
