From the Publisher

A brilliant student with a promising career ahead of him as a biologist under the guidance of Nobel Prize-winner Jacques Monod, Michel Benoît decided instead to follow the path of God and take on monastic orders. He entered a monastery at age 22 as an unordained monk, but after more than 20 years of self-sacrifice and a fraught quest for God, Michel was discharged” by the Church. In this compelling autobiography, Michel explores the events that led to the Catholic hierarchy rejecting one of its own. Along the way he investigates sectarianism and the methods used by organizations to stifle freedom of expression and to crush the individual. A gripping true story, this account reveals how the mysterious world of the Catholic abbey handles issues such as solitude, silence, and sexuality.
