A little off the beaten path, but well worth it. Wonderfully written; very informative; and spiritually nourishing.

Would go well with this movie called "Into Great Silence."
I also just finished reading a novel called The Son, written by Philip Meyer. A great story about fathers and sons; survival, loneliness and redemption. Well worth the read.
