Simone Weil is an outsider's saint. The daughter of an agnostic French family of Jewish descent, Weil was never baptized ("God does not want me in the Church," she wrote), and her conversion to Christianity at the age of 23 took her by surprise. Until then, she had been a solemn, committed leftist intellectual. Now she was moving toward a life of divine encounters whose desolate ecstasy, as described by the journals, letters, and essays excerpted in Waiting for God, bear comparison to St. John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila.

"My dear father, I have made up my mind to write to you....I have been wondering lately about the will of God, what it means and how we can reach the point of conforming ourselves to it completely - I will tell you what I think about this."  - Simone Weil, Letter 1, Waiting For God

This edition in celebration of the centennial of Simone Weil's birth has extras including - about the author and , quotes.
