Item Description...
Full of shock and anger, this father quarrels with life and God upon the abrupt death of his young adult daughter. Brimming with painful eloquence, this wounded parent gives full attention to his anguish, yet stops short of being maudlin. He is hounded by grief and by questions which are equally burdensome. Nisly's knowledge of literature brings comfort to him and readers alike. The words of Emily Dickinson, Wendell Berry, Graham Greene, and biblical texts are part of this story. Superbly written.

Publishers Description
In a remote canyon in northern New Mexico the early morning stillness is broken by voices chanting praises to the Lord. And thus begins the daily cycle in the Godcentered life and search of the Benedictine monks at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert.Seeking God is a monastic tapestry. The daily life of the monks is interwoven with the seasonal changes and celebrations and the candid words of the monks as they speak of their life their hopes and doubts their hardships fears and joys their prayer. Weaving this tapestry together are the hauntingly beautiful chants songs of praise and reverence that echo through the darkness before dawn throughout the day through the solemnity of Vespers in the evening and Compline at night. The majestic beauty of the environment captured in every season reflects a peace and tranquility that becomes an integral part of this monastic tapestry. The high red rock walls of the canyon where eagles fly cradle the valley whose stillness is broken only by the flowing waters of the Chama River and the winds that occasionally funnel through. Seeking God presents the ongoing process of the monastic way through the words and activities of these Benedictine monks as they move through the day and through the seasons in their search for God through prayer work study and song.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Intelligent, Subjective, Profound Faith  Jan 19, 2004
Paul Nisly was my main professor of English over 20 years ago. This book about the sudden accidental death of his teenaged daughter (and most likely the most vibrant member of his household during her life) was written quite a few years after I left the college at which Nisly teaches. Nisly is what I saw then as a "subjective intellectual": extremely intelligent, but also deeply sensitive and unwilling to ignore either gift, either perspective, on personal experience. His bravely retold passage through the experience of this vibrant young girl's death is like few things I have read in my life. It is one of few memoirs of its kind, combining a broad, Renaissance intellect with deep personal sensitivity--I am reminded of C.S. Lewis. I was lucky to have known and studied under Dr. Nisly. If you are a Christian or (and especially if) you are not, buy this book and enjoy it, learn from it. Its equal will be a very long time coming.
An insightful view into the authors soul  Apr 5, 2000
This is a record of the soul searching that the father of Janelle Nisly, Paul Nisly did after the unexpected death of his daughter 4 months after her graduation from college. In this, he stuggles with questions of suffering and why christians suffer. It lead me to tears, and it will do the same to you, even if you've never experienced such a traumatic experience.
