Product Description

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. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

Thirty precious icons from the Bible of Tbilisi are reproduced in this attractive book. This collection portrays the life of Jesus from the announcement of his birth to the moment of his Ascension into heaven. After a useful introduction on how to read icons, a full-page color reproduction of each icon is included along with the relevant Scripture text and a commentary written by the noted biblical scholar, Francis J. Moloney, SDB. Carefully chosen extracts from patristic texts shed further light on each of the events portrayed in the icons. Beautifully presented, this hardbound full-color book is ideal for meditation and reflection, and will make an excellent gift. Francis J. Moloney, SDB, holds the Katharine Drexel Chair of Religious Studies at the Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C. He is the author of over thirty books, including A Body Broken for a Broken People: Eucharist in the New Testament.

Endorsements

“Contrary to his title, we can trust Abbot Jerome to write lively, but still profound, essays on spiritual topics. In addition to that, he is a serious Bible scholar who knows how to bring the Good Book to bear on contemporary life issues. An ideal book for daily meditation.” - Terrence G. Kardong, OSB, Author of The Life of St. Benedict by Gregory the Great

Editorial Reviews

Kodell’s text supplies an easy-to-read set of reflections on key topics like hospitality, lectio divina, prayerful work, and silence as well as some rumination on common misconceptions surrounding monastic life. Overall this little anthology would be an asset to any collection of contemporary light spiritual reading.
Catholic Studies

[Abbot Jerome’s] writing is primarily for the laity familiar with the monastic life and therein lies the great worth of this book. Not only is there a great unpacking of Scripture, there is some of the most unaffected articulate expression of our lives as monastics that helps up put words around ourselves.
American Benedictine Review

Abbot Jerome covers many topics of interest to Benedictine monks, nuns, and oblates, as well as others interested in Benedictine monasticism and its spirituality. . . . This particular volume is highly recommended to those interested in prayer, Benedictine spirituality, and monasticism.
Curled Up With A Good Book

Each reflection is written with much humility, using personal everyday stories and anecdotes related to Scripture. About one page long, each reflection could easily serve as a daily meditation.
Liguorian

You can trust this Abbot—to deliver a generous helping of wit, wisdom, and common sense, seasoned with a humor that gentles the challenge these essays offer. Be prepared to be amused, touched, startled—and above all, to be forced to think about life in and beyond the monastery a little differently than you did before.
Sister Genevieve Glen, OSB, Abbey of St. Walburga, Virginia Dale, Colorado

Contrary to his title, we can trust Abbot Jerome to write lively, but still profound, essays on spiritual topics. In addition to that, he is a serious Bible scholar who knows how to bring the Good Book to bear on contemporary life issues. An ideal book for daily meditation.
