What Readers Have Said About A Monk’s Way…
By Francisco on September 13, 2015
“Fr. Jean Moreau is a spiritual man but an Everyman. It is easy to identify with him and his challenges, and there is a lot to learn from him. A great discussion of his perception of the God-man relationship. Very worthwhile and well written.”

“I view this as a rather important work. It’s laced with the wisdom of one who has experienced much. Even though it takes place in an abbey where few of us have been and which many outsiders would think would be all Catholic, it’s a perfect setting for the discussions that follow. Those discussions treat our approach to God and God’s approach to us with common sense, simplicity and subtlety. Beautifully written in many parts, the story evokes what it’s meant to evoke – empathy for the common man and hope for the future for all of us as we evolve to the next level.
This is not a book for everyone, but for those who think about the eternal questions of existence. Having said that, it is a good story – believable and understandable and valuable.
The good news is that there will be a sequel!”

Of all the Jungian Archetypes, such as Warrior, Lover, Magician, Queen/King, the archetype of the Monk is the most overlooked and has the most profound transformative power.
“In A Monk’s Way, Clark Eide explores the inner self of the monk. His journey is personal and thoughtful. Eide’s thoughts about the inner like are important in a world where people tend to over-focus on mass movements or appeals to the prevalence of reason. Eide hi-lights the journey within – the monk’s journey. As Carl Jung states in his classic, “The Undiscovered Self,” there are no easy solutions to the terrible crises of our industrialized world. And the transformation of our world depends on the recognition of good and evil in every individual and on a true exploration and understanding of the inner self.
I highly recommend ‘A Monk’s Way’.”

“I have always been intrigued with the idea of a monastery, with its ordered and peaceful life, and this book enabled me to see that life up close, through the eyes of a very thoughtful (and thought-provoking) character – Jean Moreau. The character raises some deep questions, and makes you think about life’s journey through the story of his own discoveries along the path. A well told and engaging story of a modern monk.”
