The challenge of new monasticism by Simon Cross
In this challenging and informative book, Simon Cross sets out some of the context for the concepts of monasticism and ‘religious life’, and explores how some groups in the UK today are imitating the monastic and religious traditions. Here, Simon shows us communities and groups which all, in widely different ways, live as new monastics; they may be on farms, or on a council estate; they may be living together, or widely dispersed, they may be of one church, or from a variety of denominations, they may have banded together around a cause, or for the single purpose of seeking God.
However they choose to live these dynamic new monastics are carrying on the tradition of their forebears, in a way fitting for the twenty-first century.
