?With this beautiful, touching and utterly believable novel, seekers will be gently invited to encounter the divine and believers be encouraged to deepen their relationships with God. I loved this book and loved the characters!? -Richard Rohr, author of Everything BelongsIn the tradition of the spiritual classics The Shack and The Screwtape Letters comes The Abbey - a debut novel from New York Times bestselling author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage and The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, James Martin, SJ, who provides a window into the spiritual journeys of three people seeking direction, showing us firsthand how God uses our worries, questions, and even anger to help us become whole.As he did in his previous bestsellers, Martin once again crafts a book that incarnates deep spiritual wisdom while being accessible and full of humor and grace, with characters such as:·       A divorced single mom, Anne can sometimes barely cope with life and struggles to make sense of the death of her young son.·       A former architect who had a promising career, Mark works as a handyman and wonders how his life got off track.·       The abbot of the Abbey of Saints Philip and James, Father Paul sometimes questions how to best live a life that secludes him so thoroughly from the world.·       At a Pennsylvania abbey, this unlikely trio will discover the answers they seek-a miracle of hope and understanding that bears witness to the surprising power of God to bring healing and wholeness to our lives.ReviewWith wit, wisdom and elegant prose, Martin has written a powerfully moving novel about (among other things) how an unbeliever can journey from suffering into spiritual practice. How it happens in an eyeblink. Another triumph from one of our best writers working like a master in a new form. --Mary Karr, author ofLit?A sheer delight?funny, engaging, deep and moving.? --Ron Hansen, author ofMariette in Ecstasy?More than a vivid portrait of a grieving mother; this tender novel shows us how, with simple words and acts, we ordinary, flawed human beings can help each other find our way to God.? --Kathleen Norris, author ofThe Cloister WalkWith this beautiful, touching and utterly believable novel, seekers will be gently invited to encounter the divine and believers be encouraged to deepen their relationships with God. I loved this book and loved the characters! --Richard Rohr, author ofEverything Belongs?[A] warmly comforting tale...[Father Martin?s] real strength is his pastoral sensibility-his compassion shines through the character of Father Paul. Like his fellow Jesuit Pope Francis, Martin is a persuasive evangelizer for a God, and church, of mercy.? --Publishers Weekly?Touching, funny and beautiful. A top pick!? --RT Book Reviews?Compassionate, engaging?with tender wit and wisdom, Martin offers an in-depth glimpse into committed religious life and how lay people can practice a devout faith amid doubt, anger and questioning.? -- Shelf Awareness?Martin?s debut novel might be compared to Paulo Coehlo?s popular fiction?Martin?s great achievement here is that the shows how [his characters are] able to have a mystical experience of God as a result of imaginative contemplation, and he succeeds in making it seem entirely natural.? -- The Tablet?Father Martin?s richly written tale gives us insight into the workings of a modern monastery and shows how God uses our worries, anger and doubts to help bring us to Him.? --Simple Grace Magazine?Martin brings his characteristic ease of personality into both the characters and the prose, quickly bringing readers comfortably into the story. He handles the most delicate and painful themes with a pastoral compassion that invites readers to find hope in their own struggles.? -- The Huffington Post?Unputdownable? -- Brendan Walsh, The Tablet?A new and improved version of those 18th-century philosophical tales such as Voltaire?s Candide or Dr. Johnson?s Ra
