A collection of monastic readings are drawn from a full range of writings from the early and contemporary monastics of various orders and from differing denominations, and includes background information on each author. Original.
The 365 daily readings from "Wisdom of the Cloister "offer the serenity of monastic life to a wide audience. Especially intended to serve the general reader, this collection surveys the whole of Christian monasticism. Included here are a full range of writings, from the earliest desert mothers and fathers to contemporary monastics.
John Skinner, author and translator of many texts of spirituality, invites the reader to peruse these varied writings using the immediately accessible style of reading known as "lectio divina." This custom, traditionally favored by monks, works on the idea that inspired texts should be approached as a means for hearing God speaking through and within the text. By way of this prayerful, openhearted method, readers may glean personal insights that are uniquely relevant and meaningful to their lives.
"Wisdom of the Cloister" is both a resource for daily inspiration and an overview of the world of monasticism.
