It is lovely the way that Kathleen Norris interweaves scripture throughout the book and illuminates the way in which daily housework and the domestic arts contribute to a spiritual life and offer opportunities for deepening it. However, her assertion that such tasks are otherwise "meaningless" shows a residual feminism that is either part of her or represents a compulsion to kowtow to feminism. The domestic arts are not meaningless tasks, anymore than a having a home, rather than having a just a house, is an empty idea.
