Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0814624286, Paperback)The monastery has often been likened to a powerhouse of prayer, providing light and energy for the countless numbers who make up the Body of Christ. This image has inadvertently furthered the view of monasticism as separate from the rest of the Church, apart from the cares and concerns of "the world." Francis Kline holds out a fresh vision of the monastic life as one form of Christian vocation which now must struggle to find its place alongside other expressions of Christian life. This is must do in communion with the whole People of God. He invites all the baptized to a participation in the monastic charism now loose in the Church at large.
