A Monk's Alphabet: Moments of Stillness in a Turning World

by Jeremy Driscoll, OSB

Yes, that's OSB as in Order of Saint Benedict. This Roman Catholic monk and theologian kept a journal of short reflections inspired by contact with various and sundry experiences: Listening to Beethoven, air travel, Washington, D.C, mosquitoes €¦ He alphabetized them by their fanciful titles to create this idiosyncratic alphabet-from anniversary to oyster to Zaccheus. The chapters can be read consecutively or, even more fun, be dipped into randomly for unexpected delights.
