Product Description

"From the Publisher:" Full of shock and anger, this father quarrels with life and God upon the abrupt death of his young adult daughter. Brimming with painful eloquence, this wounded parent gives full attention to his anguish, yet stops short of being maudlin. He is hounded by grief and by questions which are equally burdensome. Nisly's knowledge of literature brings comfort to him and readers alike. The words of Emily Dickinson, Wendell Berry, Graham Greene, and biblical texts are part of this story. Superbly written. 6 x 9 88 pages paperback.

Publisher's Description

In a remote canyon in northern New Mexico the early morning stillness is broken by voices chanting praises to the Lord. And thus begins the daily cycle in the Godcentered life and search of the Benedictine monks at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert.Seeking God is a monastic tapestry. The daily life of the monks is interwoven with the seasonal changes and celebrations and the candid words of the monks as they speak of their life their hopes and doubts their hardships fears and joys their prayer. Weaving this tapestry together are the hauntingly beautiful chants songs of praise and reverence that echo through the darkness before dawn throughout the day through the solemnity of Vespers in the evening and Compline at night. The majestic beauty of the environment captured in every season reflects a peace and tranquility that becomes an integral part of this monastic tapestry. The high red rock walls of the canyon where eagles fly cradle the valley whose stillness is broken only by the flowing waters of the Chama River and the winds that occasionally funnel through. Seeking God presents the ongoing process of the monastic way through the words and activities of these Benedictine monks as they move through the day and through the seasons in their search for God through prayer work study and song.
