MEDIA REVIEWS
Finding Happiness: Monastic Steps to a Fulfilling Life takes the reader through a very personalized journey of the soul and spirit.Lost in Books
The genius of this work lies in its integration of classical thought (Plato, Aristotle, and Cassian) with more current movements (e.g., cognitive behavior therapy, 12-step programs). Author Christopher Jamison, abbot of the Benedictine monastery in Sussex, holds these frames of reference in delicate balance; the resulting creative tension gives birth to a useful guide to living well. . . . This book is solid food for 'personal soul-recovery.'Prairie Messenger
It is rewarding to read this lovely book because through it one touches base with oneself as being human and Christian. Through the text the author gently nudges the reader forward once again on the path of effort and virtue. . . . There is a wise Christian behavioral psychology being presented here and one experiences a certain lightness in reading it. For you are advised to 'travel light, ' to not be dependent on others for one's happiness. And your journey is not meant to be burdensome as there will always be 'a word to live by' when one is in touch with the Scriptures.The Furrow
