Book Description: Out of the organised chaos of a radio station newsroom and into the silence of an austere Trappist monastery. In The Abbot’s Shoes Peter recounts his journey and brings into our view the hidden day-to-day life within an enclosed contemplative community. Now almost 50 years later (after careers as a Catholic journalist, Presbyterian preacher, and Pentecostal revivalist) Peter writes about his “return” to this other world.
