Peter Seewald's books with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI), Salt of the Earth and God and the World, have been translated into 25 languages. Journalists Lucia Glahn and Simone Kosog live in Munich, and Bernhard M ller, a publisher, lives in Kesslegg, Germany.
"Featuring numerous daily exercises, advice and anecdotes, this
compilation of words from monks and nuns who have chosen lives of
renunciation and simplicity brings a calm perspective to such
diverse endeavors as fasting for purification of the soul,
moderation and orderliness. Even a brief read is enough to inspire
a break for reflection."
