"John Michael Talbot helps us to see how a love like Francis' might live in a body like mine, wearing clothes like mine, working a job like mine. In short, he shows us how our world and we might find happiness at last."

"“JMT takes us along on his journey toward understanding monasticism.  It is a rollicking ride through history with snacks along the way.  Even if we don’t join a monastery, we can pick up some of the snacks for our own journey."

Fr. Jerome Kodell, O.S.B.
Former 6th Abbot of Subiaco Abbey - Quote from "Monk Dynasty"
