A new mode of Christian living is springing to life as groups of individuals and families living in the same geographic area or connected virtually share a simple rule of life. Cave, Refectory, Road explores how traditional monastic life is helping to shape a new flowering of Christian community today. It traces the roots of 'new monasticism' and draws on the classic elements of monastic life to suggest how this ancient wisdom, learning, and spiritual practice might be reinterpreted for new settings. A handbook for all who are exploring 'intentional living,' its rich and inspiring teaching is clustered around three themes: The cave: the place of stillness, prayer, and withdrawal that can inspire a new engagement with the mystery of God. The refectory: how monastic practices of hospitality can create communities that make a difference in the world. The road: how the example of the friars can lead to creative and loving engagement with public life.
