"Here, in words and images, is the story of this Benedictine academic and spiritual community. Saint John's at 150 has a foreword by Abbot John Klassen, an afterword by President Dietrich Reinhart, and an introduction by Minnesota historian Annette Atkins, who provides a quick survey of what was going on in the rest of the state and the nation as background for the Saint John's story. Then twelve chapters by various authors - some in the monastery, some on the faculty, some from the rest of the world - present personal essays on topics in Saint John's first 150 years, everything from the missionary lifestyle of the first monks to cameo images of some current college profs in the classroom. Sidebars and special features add thirty more writers to the mix for short pieces that are interesting because of the authors as well as the topics."--BOOK JACKET
