Totally DevotedJackie Scott, via The Good Book Stall
For those who are eager to discover more about Monasticism and its modern counterpart, or for those who are being challenged to consider a simpler way of living within the Christian faith alongside others who have a similar mindset, this offers a clear, albeit brief, overview of the history of Monasticism and moves into looking at the definition of New Monasticism and how Christians are expressing this today. It is divided into two parts – part one being a relatively unbiased look at the history, and Part two looks at the many current expressions of New Monasticism in Britain.
The author writes clearly and concisely and I found that I wanted to know more detail about some of the history that he considers in Part 1. Part 2 out of necessity – bearing in mind the wide brief of the title, and a comparatively small book – became a bit more of a chore because there are actually so very many examples of the monastic and religious communities from all parts of the Christian church. Simon Cross has tried to include as many as he could and tried to classify them into town communities, farm communities, prayer versus action communities and so on. Despite this it did challenge my way of thinking about living with other Christians in a community and the sacrifices and benefits that changing one’s way of life, and therefore one’s way of thinking, can bring. He also was able to show the benefit that living in community can have on one’s faith and on relationships that flow from this.
