Monks Road is intended as a keepsake and a gift book. It is filled with beautiful photographs taken by the monks of the abbey.

It features text by Fr. Michael Casey, the well-known Cistercian author of many books, who writes a synopsis of monastic history and spirituality. It also includes a section on Gethsemani's history and its place in the heart of the Kentucky Catholic community written by local historian Fr. Clyde Crews.

The book's designers, James McDonald and the Impress Group, worked closely with monastery to produce the very best book possible. It is bound in sturdy softcover, with french flaps, with sewn signatures, which means that it will stand up to years of browsing.
