The women of Hull House a study in spirituality, vocation, and friendship by Eleanor J Stebner ( )
8 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 1,842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This group biography explores the lives, work, and personal relations of nine white, middle and upper-middle-class women who were involved in the first decade of Chicago's premier social settlement. This "galaxy of stars" - as they were called in their own day - were active in innumerable political, social, and religious reform efforts." "The Women of Hull House refutes the humanistic interpretation of the social settlement movement. Its spiritual base is highlighted as the author describes it as the practical/ethical side of the social gospel movement and as an attempt to transform late nineteenth-century evangelical and doctrinal Christian religion. While the women of Hull House differed from one another in their theological beliefs and were often critical of orthodox Christianity, they were motivated by Christian ideals." "By showing the interconnections of spirituality, vocation, and friendship, the author argues that individual actions for social changes must take place within communities which provide a level of uniting vision yet allow for diverse actions and viewpoints."--BOOK JACKET
