Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0984061614, Paperback)

Nine Jewels of Night is a profoundly moving personal account of theologian and spiritual teacher Beverly Lanzetta’s search for a new expression of the eternal quest for truth. With open-hearted storytelling, she chronicles her growing restlessness to answer a spiritual call until on a gorgeous autumn day, in her twenty-ninth year, she is converted by a series of revelations beyond the boundaries of established religions to the one reality at the heart of all religions, and to an entirely singular path of contemplation.

Lanzetta’s compelling and intimate portrayal of the ensuing thirty-eight years invites you to reflect on your own spiritual path as it gently draws you into questions about the nature of God, the monastic heart, suffering, the inner dimensions of mystical experience, composing a contemplative life, following a radical path of devotion, the search for solitude, trusting one’s inner voice, loving the Divine, and being empty of self.

“This is a love story of infinite intimacy—a story of how Beverly Lanzetta has come to love and be loved by ‘the Unnameable.’ This work is imbued with a poignancy that is reminiscent of other well-known spiritual autobiographies, particularly Augustine’s Confessions and Merton’s The Seven Storey Mountain. Beautiful and moving. Indeed, I found it to be so beautiful and moving that I marked numerous pages for future reference.”
Brother Gregory Perron, OSB
