This study in Christian ethics explores the crucial role of patience in the lives of individuals, families, communities, and nations. Harned argues that the exercise of patience is crucial to family life as well as to any kind of communal life. Patience has its roots in the Christian contemplative tradition and stresses the pastoral themes of reconciliation, love of neighbor, the steady work of relationships, and the endurance of illness and aging.
