One would expect an abbot to have words of wisdom for monks living in a monastery. But could his musings be relevant for those living in a complicated and often harried world? Yes, as readers will discover in this insightful collection. In these essays, from "Coldhearted Orthodoxy" to "God's DVD Library," from "The God of Hearsay" to "The Turtle on the Fencepost", readers will think in new ways about prayer and the Christian life, about faith and trust. Along the way, they will find in Jerome Kodell an abbot worthy of trust.
