Editorial Reviews


"Secular Monasticism provides, in multiple voices, the intriguing account of a recent, new development in ministry and communal life ...  In particular, the continuous interweaving of themes related to communal practice and theological education will I believe engage the reader."
Robert A. Hill, Dean of Marsh Chapel, Boston University

The Lindisfarne Community represents an attempt to take the deepest Christian values to be found in the monastic life and to live them out in the context of everyday life, in one's family life, in one's work obligations. "Secular Monasticism: A Journey" describes the careful and prayerful development of that vision ...

The story is a fascinating one.  And it shows very well that the Spirit--the Wild Goose--inspires ever new forms of living out our Christian faith and our search for union with God.
Archb. Joseph Grenier, The Celtic Christian Church
