In 1901 England, a young man sets out on a spiritual odyssey. Becoming a monk, he is sent to a far off monastery, so that he can learn to be a champion of prayer. Along this path, the little monk learns about silence, solitude and tranquility. He learns about love, joy, prayer and peace.
In light of recent events, at one time I began to think that this was not the right time to read this book. Later, though, I began to realize that this is the perfect time to read this book. In a time of tumult and alarum, it is right and proper to think about peace, where it can be found and how it can be acquired. This short book is a quick read, with simple but fitting illustrations, one that I recommend.
