Summary "Brother John is the true story of a monastic encounter between the author, going through a mid-life crisis, and an umbrella wielding Trappist monk. A magical Christmas Eve encounter that eventually leads the author and us all to the redemptive power of an authentically purposeful life. Uplifting, deeply moving, and set in the magnificent Trappist monastery of Mepkin Abbey, Brother John is dramatically brought to life by over twenty full color paintings by Glenn Harrington, a multiple award-winning artist." --Publisher description.
