Benedict's Dharma (hardcover)

Buddhists Reflect on
the Rule of St. Benedict (hardcover)
Edited by Patrick Henry
Forward by David Steindl-Rast, OSB

Saint Benedict's Rule is a set of guidelines that has governed Christian monastic life since the sixth century. Those who live according to the Rule, which regulates daily life in a monastery, regard it as the bedrock of their lives and feel great affection for its writer, a monk whose humility and extraordinary insight into human nature are legendary. The Rule has fascinated laypeople and monastics alike, including Buddhist monks and nuns who are intrigued by the similarities between their traditions and those of their Christian counterparts.

This book is the fruit of dialogue between Christian and Buddhists that began at the Gethsemani Encounter in 1996. Besides the reflections by four distinguished Buddhists, Norman Fischer, Joseph Goldstein, Judith Simmer-Brown and Ven. Yifa, there is a conclusion by Brother David Steindl-Rast, O.S.B. For the sake of ongoing dialogue the Rule of St. Benedict translated by Abbot Patrick Barry, O.S.B., has been included. The editor is Patrick Henry, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Ecumenical Institute at St. John's Collegeville, Minnesota. Hardcover, 223 pages.

B&W photos. Hardcover, 197 pages. 8 1/2" X 9"

"This astonishing book looks at an aspect of Merton's life that has been almost ignored."

Will I See My Pet in Heaven? (hardcover)

(children's edition)

This charming book is the children's edition of Friar Jack Wintz's bestseller I Will See You in Heaven. It comforts and explains to children that God loves and cares for all creatures, including and especially those we are close to.

"We don't know everything God has planned for us in heaven. But there are many good reasons for you to believe that your dog, cat, fish, hamster, snake, ferret, iguana—or any other creature that God created—will go to heaven when it dies. God has given us clues and hints in stories from the Bible and in the teachings of my favorite saint, Francis of Assisi..."
Friar Jack, OFM

The Abbey Psalter (hardcover)

The Grail Edition of the Book of Psalms used by the Trappist Monks of Genesee Abbey, hand-lettered by the monks and set for personal or choir chanting

A number of guests for the liturgy at the Abbey of Genesee have discovered something of the riches of the Psalter through chanting the psalms along with the monastic choir. They are aided in this discovery by The Abbey Psalter provided for their use in the Abbey church. This book was printed from a text that had been artfully copied out by hand at the Abbey. The original was done in a non-classified style using India ink with a #2 1/2 or 3 pen point. The work took some four hundred hours spread out over 10 months, from February to December, 1974. It is done in such a way as to suggest something of the personal character that suits the meditative recital of the psalms, and something too of the peace and silence that monks seek to bring to their common prayer. Hardcover, 352 pages.
