Memories of Grace:

Portraits from the Monaster

James Stephen Behrens (ACTA Publications)

Father Behrens, an occasional contributor to this magazine, offers up a new collection of vivid portraits about people, places and events that have touched his life. From the Trappist monastery in Conyers, Georgia, he reflects on memories as “a voice that asks us to remember where we’re going.”

Behrens’ memories range from his childhood in New Jersey, his two decades as a parish priest and his journey to his current cloistered life at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Georgia.

This is Behrens’ third book.
