Cave Refectory Road: Monastic Rhythms for Contemporary Living
By Ian Adams
A handbook for all who are exploring ‘intentional living’, its rich and inspiring teaching is clustered around these themes:
The cave: the place of stillness, prayer and withdrawal that can inspire a new engagement with the mystery of God.
The refectory: how monastic practices of hospitality can create communities that make a difference in the world.
The road: how the example of the friars can lead to creative and loving engagement with public life.
Ian Adams is an Anglican priest and was the co-founder and abbot of the experimental mayBe community in Oxford. He is the author of the daily Morning Bell call to prayer in the Monastic tradition.
"Ian Adams' excellent book takes three elements of the historic monastic tradition and recasts them for the benefit both of individuals seeking a deeper walk with God and for the many emerging new monastic communities in the UK and beyond ... This is an easy book to read, and at 99 pages not a long one ... Read chapter by chapter it would provide excellent material for a series of Third Order small group meetings.'
–David Walker, Bishop of Dudley
