Glass of Liquid Truths (Paperback)
Glass of Liquid Truths is a prize-winning poetry book written by an Augustinian friar. In the words of one critic, it's "a tankard rich with memories and feelings, thoughts and imaginations bred of the cloister and of the hearth, talented by the light streaking in from the varicolored windows of a cathedral that cannot but glitter with the painful awareness of man's frailties" where one can find "Augustine confronting Genet in the same cubicle of grief and suffering" and "a friar hovering between earth and heaven, uncertain whether to fall or to rise, to clasp the earth for what it is worth or to go searching for a God who plays 'hide-and-seek.'
