Beyond the Walls: Monastic Wisdom for Everyday Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With earnest resolve and the vague hope of a deeper spiritual life, Paul Wilkes began his monthly visits to a Trappist monastery. His plan was to spend time each month with the monks and take back into his hectic world of family and profession what he had garnered from the cloistered life. But Wilkes naively misjudged how difficult it would be to achieve his seemingly simple good intentions. Monasticism turned out to be far more complx and demanding that he had imagined, calling upon him to look deeply into himself and requiring a bravery he was not sure, at first, that he possessed. A year later, he had not only discovered the simple path of monastic spirituality, but had journeyed to the depths of his soul and realized that the influences on his daily life were truly immense. With the ever-increasing call for access to authentic spiritual traditions, Beyond The Walls breaks new ground. This is a book that points a way for "new monks" to live a rich, challenging life filled with grace and faith.

Synopsis:

In this searingly personal spiritual exploration inspired by centuries-old monastic truths and practices, Wilkes treads a pilgrim's path that takes him behind the walls of a monastery and back into the everyday world as a changed man. "Beyond the Walls" points out a way for "new monks" to live rich, challenging lives filled with grace and faith.
