A Memoir of Maximus Heart
Culled from over 40 years of personal, handwritten journal volumes, Glorious Ruins: A Memoir of Maximus Heart is one man's tales of the sacred and profane from inside an epic story of discovery, recovery, life, death, the wounds that break a heart and the healing that renews a soul.
Raw and in an authentic voice, these excerpts are disruptively honest in their transparency, fiercely intentional in their truth, and scandalously free in their story of redemption. MATURE THEMES & ADULT LANGUAGE INCLUDED

"As a young boy growing up in The Bronx, I knew it was always one of those family moments that actually felt familial – where we would gather together in the living room while my mother pulled out the 8mm movie projector, set up the portable viewing screen, and opened up the film cases that held various canisters of home movies."

Some advance words on Glorious ruins:
"In Glorious Ruins, John Jamiolkowski does not simply tell his own story...he tells mine, too. Through his brutal honesty and brilliant, top-notch storytelling skills, he brings us into a tale that is - being so unapologetically human - the story of us all. In this gripping account of his life, he pulls back the curtain of the years and his own inner being, and in a daringly bold and compelling manner allows each one of us to see what we are ready to see in ourselves. His is a story of adventure and love; it is a story of loss and a hope that is beyond understanding. It is a story where the sacred and the profane dance side by side in a beautiful, dangerous, raw, redemptive glorious harmony...as they do in all our lives."
