The Power of Purpose


"Brother John is the true story of how the author’s
contemplative retreat at a Trappist monastery turns both magical and terrible
when a simple monk offers to share an umbrella on a cold and rainy Christmas
Eve. This simple act of loving-kindness proves almost more than he can bear, and
becomes the catalyst for a gut wrenching re-evaluation of life, love, and the
terrible yet fascinating nature of God."
