The Shattering of Loneliness: On Christian Remembrance Paperback – 20 Nov 2018
|New from||Used from|
Customers who bought this item also bought
The Shattering of Loneliness is an extraordinary book: not too long but richly dense; profound in its insights and scholarship yet eminently readable; and though clearly written by a monk happy to be a monk, it has as
much relevance to the ordinary Christian as to the Trappist monks in the author's care.
Intimately personal but never self-indulgent, it is at once arresting and challenging, uplifting and reassuring, and profoundly moving . The richness of this remarkable book is impossible to convey adequately in so few words. No reader will remain unchanged. (Tablet)
Absorbing and fascinating ... It is a book to be read more than once. (Methodist Recorder)

The author weaves together scripture, liturgy, poetry (from Virgil to Rilke), a playright, art, Eastern Christian spirituality, and the story of St. Mary of Egypt from the Desert Fathers.
I found the second chapter to be the most intriguing. It is probably the chapter most accessible for most readers. It was very helpful for me.
I didn’t give this five stars because it is not an easy book to read. It needs to be pondered and prayed over.
But if you want to consider the role of memory in the Christian life and to let our memory be transformed.
