Signs of fresh life, springing up from the roots of traditional monastic life, can be seen throughout the Church as growing numbers of groups – whether gathered or scattered – seek to live the gospel with renewed integrity.
Is God shaping a new monasticism?
Can ancient tradition enrich the life and mission of the wider Church?
Can it engage with the complexity of contemporary culture and create an atmosphere, as Abbot Stuart Burns ask, where Christ can be encountered?
New monastic pioneers from Britain and America share their stories and reflect on their commitment to mission in diverse local contexts, sustained by community and a rule of life. They explore how the essentials of monastic spirituality – prayer, hospitality, community, rhythm of life and practical engagement – can resource a mission in today’s world where the Church and culture often stand far apart.
