    1 thought on “Murder and Redemption at a Benedictine Abbey”

    1. I liked the book because it was a personal narrative of someone trying to make sense of some very important issues: life and death. The book is an easy read giving an outsider's view of Benedictine life. The author has a very understanding of the gift of the Rule of St Benedict.I picked up the book of an interest in Benedictine monasticism and because it dealt with the murder of monks in 2002. Johnson exemplifies Anselm's faith seeking understanding.

    2. This author has real skill at turn of phrase and description. The journey he takes is not nearly as dark as the title might indicate but if there is any part of the title that is most appropriate it is redemption. The story doesn't really follow a traditional line, moving back and forth from past moments to current to philosophical thoughts. But I think that adds to the joy rather than detracts.

    3. While this book is clearly heartfelt, the writing is strangely inconsistent. Part memoir, part portrait of an abbey, part philosophical dissertation, sometimes a lecture, at other times a journal, the book seems more a wandering of wonderings than an intentional writing. It lacks identity and, frankly, I expected more from a literature professor.
