New Monasticism: What It Has to Say to Today’s Church


Brazos 2008

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


“It’s hard to be a Christian in America,” writes Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, a leader in the new monasticism movement in America, a growing group of committed Christians who are living lives of radical discipleship. However, the movement doesn’t mirror traditional monasteries--many members are married with children and have careers, yet they live differently, often in community in once-abandoned sections of society. Wilson-Hartgrove founded a new monastic community and works with an alternative theological collaborative. In this book, he takes readers inside new monasticism, tracing its roots through scripture and history and illuminating its impact on the contemporary church. “Monasticism isn’t about achieving some sort of individual or communal piety. It’s about helping the church be the church,” he writes. A must-read for new monastics or those considering joining the movement, this book will also appeal to 20- and 30-somethings, pastors, leaders, and those interested in the emerging church.
