Cave Refectory Road: monastic rhythms for contemporary living
In this short and eminently readable book, Ian Adams captures the essential genius of the monastic tradition and combines it with his own experience as poet, family man and abbot of a ‘new-monastic community’ to address the dis-ease of so much of our contemporary ways of living. His books gives simple practical inspiration for ‘ordinary living’ and re-calls monks and nuns, friars and sisters to the passion of their founders as it asks: ‘How did the dynamic way of the passionate, scandalous re-imaginer Jesus give way to so much that is pointless, repressed and safe?’

Ian skilfully opens up the Christian contemplative tradition in a grounded and accessible way for today’s spiritual seeker. In an age when many are spiritually hungry, Ian opens up the Christian tradition in a way that is dynamically spiritual and authentically religious. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to establish a deep Christian faith and practice that can thrive in the complexity of the modern world.
