Reviews - What do customers think about Tales of a Magic Monastery (Tales Magic Monastry Ppr)?

Cute but senseless  Dec 27, 2007
This is a cute book with fabulous illustrations but it just doesn't make sense. Each of the tiny short stories have no point and no meaning other than cute and fun.
"Could You Go Deeper?" ~ Captivating Tales Of Illumination  Sep 22, 2006
'Tales of a Magic Monastery' published in '81 is a slim 95 page paperback book consisting of 12 chapters containing short 1 or 2 page tales written by an apparent nome-de-plume known as Theophane the Monk.

Join Theophane and his mythical cast of monks as they search for truth not only within the sacred walls of the monastery, but also those self imposed barriers created by each of us; our fears, our presuppositions, our unwillingness to let go and refind ourselves deeper within are exposed and confronted in this captivating volume.

Each vinette and evocative illustration will not only delight but promote thoughtful consideration that will bring you back for further examination again and again. Great reading for a short trip, or even better as a companion reader for a retreat or personal meditation.
Theothane the Monk, aka "Great-Uncle Jimmy"  Nov 5, 2005
Disclaimer: Theothane's twin sister was my grandma, so I'm obviously more than a bit biased. Yes, he was one person, yes, he had a vibrance and childlike love of life coupled with a deep and mature reverence for God, and from that, this amazing book came.
this book inspires and charms  Aug 12, 2002
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Father Theophane. I'd enjoyed this book, and I'd already given several copies to friends. But, I had assumed the some monks banded together and made up Theophane. There is such a whimsical and free feeling about these stories that a pretend author seemed not only possible but likely. It surprises me that one person could come up with all these different perspectives. But, Father Theophane himself is surprising! He first strikes you as a sort of reprobate monk - a bit wild in appearance and manner. Except, when he says Mass, all that personality and charisma are companioned by Theophane's deep reverence. He's an exceptional character. This book helped me know God better and know myself better. I highly recommend it.
Keys to heaven right here  Jul 20, 2000
Theophane the Monk's book is absolutely wonderful. Tiny stories (like Zen koans) will bring your soul right to the door of heaven. I believe that if we spent enough time on even ONE of the stories, we would learn all we need to learn to find God.

TALES OF A MAGIC MONASTERY inspired me so much that I set twelve of the tales to music. I wrote to Theophane the Monk to ask his permission to use the stories, and he (being a monk, I suppose) did not answer my letter -- whereupon I wrote a second letter and said, "If you remain silent, I will take this as my permission to use your stories." Silence prevailed, so I finished the little operas, and we performed them. This was in 1985! Now I am revising the score and will be selling it over the web along with many other liturgical and other opera scores.
