A journalist and award-winning novelist offers a frank and intimate account of how he rediscovered faith in a spiritual journey from Gethsemani to the San Francisco Zen Center, through Buddhism and back to Catholicism.
From the Publisher:
In his resonant account of a spiritual quest, Fenton Johnson examines what it means for a skeptic to have and to keep faith. Exploring Western and Eastern monastic traditions, Johnson lives as a member of the community at the Trappist Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky and at the branches of the San Francisco Zen Center. Ultimately his encounter with Buddhism brings him to a new understanding and embrace of Christianity. Weaving together meditations on Johnson's spiritual journey with history and insights from modern monks, Keeping Faith offers a blueprint for a new way of practicing faith.

Praise

Body & Soul
"[Johnson's] exploration of the waxing and waning of his own faith, as well as a look at what really goes on in the abbeys of both Christian and Buddhist monks." - Frances Lefkowitz May/June 2003
