The main thing I learned from this book is that I'm glad I'm not a monk. They couldn't laugh, they couldn't talk to people who weren't monks, they couldn't give or receive gifts, they couldn't own anything, and they just generally led a hard life - all in pursuit of God's favor, which they could have had just by trusting Jesus! I'm also glad this book was so short, because if it was longer I would have died of boredom.
