A monastic vision for the 21st century: where do we go from here?
An ancient lifestyle which has been adapted, renewed, and is still being followed today, monasticism appears to some outside it as a quaint anachronism and to others as the sanest of all ways of living. Can it survive in the post post-modern world? A dozen insiders and outsiders-monastics, academics, clergy, laypersons, hermits, cenobites, poets, and writers-offer their reflections on the future of the monastic life of prayer and community.
