This book is wonderfully written and an honest outlook from a human about his surroundings in relation to God. The book consists of short prose, essays that's no more than about 300 words started with a particular word. These entries are sorted alphabetically, hence the title "A Monk's Alphabet". The entries are not sugar coated, only to reflect a "good faith" but also reflects the human moments of doubt, and questions to God.

These entries inspires me to also take a look at the world around me and also my life...better appreciating the beauty and God's presence in them. ( )

I read a little on and off. It has a wonderful point of view on life. Soulful and honest. ( )

This is an absolutely beautiful little "miscellany" book of essays of varying lengths on a variety of topics arranged alphabetically. Many of the short essays could also be used as meditations on contemporary life. Written by a monk who spends half the year in rural solitude and the other half in bustling Italy. ( )
