"AA? kind of updated Seven Storey Mountain for the contemporary reader." --Jon Hassler, St. Paul Pioneer Press "Gentle musings on four decades of monastic life...Tvedten weaves the teachings of St. Benedict with the ebb and flow of daily events at this busy monastery...Readers of Kathleen Norris will appreciate this insider's view of the monastery in which her books are set...Tvedten's honesty and genuine humility keep this memoir from becoming another pat homage to the simple life." --Kirkus Reviews "Brother Benet Tvedten is a born storyteller...In his hands, these monks come to life, with all their trust and distrust, peevishness and kindness, good humor and the lack of it, vividly and often lovingly depicted." --Kathleen Norris "Tvedten is a James Herriot of Benedictines, showing the same affection for his life and the people in it while appreciating the funny side." --Publishers Weekly
