It is often assumed that people who live in monasteries are either exceptionally holy or exceedingly strange. Monks are just ordinary men, explains warm-hearted storyteller Br. Benet Tvedten, and some of them are as quirky as the rest of us. This charming book is an insider's look at some of the "cast and characters" in a modern-day monastery.
You are advised not to read this book if you will be disappointed to learn that monks are fully human and always fallible. But if you enjoy a good story about real people who just happen to have chosen a remarkable way of life, you will be delighted.
Brother Benet Tvedten entered Blue Cloud Abbey in Marvin, South Dakota in 1958. He has been his community's Director of Oblates for nearly thirty years, and held the position of Coordinator of the North American Association of Oblate Directors between 1995 and 1999.
