    Starts Strong But Loses It's Way

    The premise of 'Keeping Faith' is compelling. The reawakening of curiosity at the extraordinary meeting of Buddist and Trappist Monks following the life long work of Thomas Merton grabbed me from the beginning. The first-hand accounts of life among both sets of Monks in the months that follow was illuminating. This part of the book is unlike anything written on the subject. However, midway through the book Johnson strays from the expertise and credibility of recounting his own experiences. He begins an resitation of Church history that is inaccurate both historically and theologically and reflects a gay and liberal world view. That he would present such information as an arguement after reflection on all the facts would be valid. That he presents such disputed information as fact without examination is void of the credibility of his early narrative. Through this muddled middle the book loses its way and ends with a self-centered theology that gives Johnson spirituality on his own terms. His discovery is not really a discovery at all, and the exercise is rendered pointless.
