“Bring your highlighter and your sense of wonder to a comfortable chair and marvel at what you didn’t know about Biblical history. Waiting For Our Souls To Catch Up is a must read for all those seeking a spiritual peace in a high-tech world. But most of all bring your appreciation of Sister Carol Perry’s scholarly brilliance in refining prayer, faith, and grace. I love this book. I will always have two, my annotated one and another one to give away.”

“Sister Carol Perry is one of the most brilliant biblical scholars I have ever known. She truly breaks the mold: a loyal Roman Catholic who marches ahead of and challenges her denomination in much of the world’s social agenda, a respected nun who has been on the staff of America’s oldest Protestant congregation for over 30 years, and a woman of maturity who holds an undeniable appeal to the young and the hip. When you read this book, you are in for a treat. It will leave you longing for more.”
