New Monasticism as Fresh Expression of Church
edited by Graham Cray and Ian Mobsby
The combination of Fresh Expressions and the explosion of interest in monastic spirituality is resulting in the emergence of new monastic communities inspired by historic patterns of religious life, but reframed for the contemporary world. This worldwide movement is seen as a radical expression of ecclesial community and was named in Mission Shaped Church as one of the leading new forms of church that would help people reconnect with Christianity. In this book, hear stories and reflections on how an ancient expression of being church is inspiring and shaping a very new one. Included are many well-known contributors.
