Format: Paperback
Ed Hays has a rare and unusual gift for story telling. Trained by Benedictine monks, he has lived his adult life in Kansas thought travel ling extensively in the near and far East. The Ethiopian Tattoo Shop is a collection of 12 stories worked round a wonderful frame story which begins and ends in jerusalem . These stories, which are best read one at a time and savored, mix the ordinary and fantasy in delightful and life enhancing way. This is no simple parable book where the message is telegraphed long before the end of the story. It continually intrigues, challenges and surprises the reader. Some of the stories, truly can be life changing. Get the book and find out why it has such an unusual title. These are not just great stories but may be helpful for teacher and educators and preachers in giving a fresh and lively insight to the age old issues of what it means to fully and playfully alive. As a bonus the book is illuminated by Ed Hays in his own inimitable style. If you love stories and story telling don't miss out on this rare treat.

Sweet stories that inspire. Short, simple stories that allow you to search for a moral lesson. As suggested by another teacher, I have been reading the short stories to my classes (sophomores) & they write various reflections. Yes, it is possible to hook high schoolers with "story time".

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Patricia Buschette on September 24, 2006
Format: Paperback
Edward Hays was the guest speaker at a gathering in Willmar, Minnesota many years ago. He appeared before his audience at St. Mary's wearing an apron and explaining to his audience that it was the role of all to be of service. Many, especially the women in attendance, were scandalized by his appearance, and said that it was beneath the dignity of a prist to wear an apron. It was his insight of service that drew me to his teaching. I bought The Ethiopian Tattoo Shop that day. It is one of the most remarkable books I have read. Just as the parables of the New Testament provided teaching lessons, the wonderful stories of the tattoo shop provide insight in a delightful way.

I found it very thought provoking make me stop and think meditating on the many stories. I first ordered it on my kindle, because I was unable to order it in written form, after reading about half of it I wanted it in written form so I started looking for it. I was fortunate to find it on Amazon at THRIFT BOOKS for only $ .31 cents with shipping it only cost me $4.30 and I received it in a weeks time witch was amazing considering all the snow storms we have had and the condition of the book was like new thank you Amazon and Thrift Books I am encouraging anyone who sees anything that they want on either Amazon or Thrift Book not to hesitate. I would have given it 10 stars if it were possible.

I thought the book looked interesting for my husband. He has been reading it and really enjoys the book. I'm not sure what the book is about to be honest. My husband loves to learn about Ethiopia and it's culture. He does take time in books, but is reading quickly on this one.

What an amazing book! Each story has a message to it and is written so simply and enjoyably. I felt like I had a delicious box of candy and ate only one piece a day so I could savor the flavor of each. Loved it and have found a new author.

I was first exposed to this book twenty years ago, it is truly a classic. I am pleased to now own it! I love the stories and the poignant meaning to be derived from each tale.
