CORITA KENT. ART AND SOUL. THE BIOGRAPHY. is the painstakingly researched account of the nun who made a world of difference and, to her surprise, simultaneously made a name for herself. On the cover of Newsweek in 1964, Sister Mary Corita became known as the Rebel Nun. The prototype for every outspoken nun since. Yet Corita was never outspoken. It was her artwork that spoke volumes. Her message was clear. Love. Peace. Joy. Godliness. What would Jesus do, she asked, long before the words became a politicized cliche. Would He go to war? Would He let people starve? Would He judge? Would He not forgive? She knew the answers before she asked the questions.
