5.0 von 5 Sternen Inspiring and Soul-Searching!, 6. Januar 2000
Through a Narrow Gate is a testament to the personal struggle between feeling the faith and wanting to somehow live it, too. I am impressed with her ability to relive the experience while being fair to both sides and making their decisions and feelings make sense, even when they are directly opposing. The most remarkable thing is her feelings about the modern convents given her struggle and her respect for what was. Her respect is contagious - she gave it to me! She, and her experiences, seem to ratify my own even as mine pale against her story. I recommend it to anyone seriously trying to understand God in their own lives and in their own terms.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Revealing, honest, respectful, 24. Februar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Detailing step by step how she reached the decision to enter a convent, the process noviceship, postulantship, the trials and joys of being a nun, and her gradual realization that her spiritual quest lay outside the walls of the convent, Karen Armstrong's autobiography is rich with detail, honest, and reflective. She avoids painting the church and its adminstration as demons, yet vividly describes the search for the personal annihilation her superiors demanded of her with unabashed candor. A truly fascinating read; it is a tragedy that the sequel, _Beginning the World_, is out of print.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very good memoir..., 2. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Karen Armstrong writes of the tribulations she encountered while a nun in England in the 1960's. This book is not a hatchet-job or a racy "true confessions" kind of screed. It is instead a frank, informative, and searing narrative of how the author felt she could no longer continue her vocation in the regimented atmosphere of the convent. I almost felt as if I was reading Thomas Merton's "Seven Storey Mountain" with a "Rewind" button pushed. I highly recommend it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Revealing, honest memoir, 10. Juli 1998
A beautifully narrated walk through the years of formation of a Catholic nun during the turbulent sixties. Armstrong's voice is unabashed and pure. Reading of her quest for God gives one pause to ponder the difference between knowing God and knowing what we want God to be. An alarming book in its revelation of the Marine-like cruelty of some religious orders before Vatican II. A must read for anyone who is questioning the makings of their spirituality.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book that had to be written., 23. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book is one of the sadest and most beutiful book I have red in years. Her life in the book is so real. Even if not so many people enter a monastry this is what we as young people have to fight. And all along the way she was faithful and did what she thought was right. It describes what it is to be a human in the phase of growing up. To realise that life is to be accepted but not without a questionmark before.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Intense Story of A Young Woman's Spiritual Struggle, 12. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Amazing detail about internal sturggles; the book manages to be both compassionate and honest at the same time, especially when discussing some of the cruelty she suffered under her superiors, especially Mother Walter. Mother Walter is a particularly chilling figure.
