Book Description

"Chittister (The Time Is Now), a Benedictine nun and social activist, addresses how ordinary people can apply the practices and wisdoms of monastic traditions to their daily lives in this impeccable guide. After all, she writes, “Monasticism does not flee the world.” Each of the 50 brief chapters examines a nugget of monastic tradition (the practice of hospitality, the place of the cloister, dedication to peace and justice) before providing advice for lay readers on how to apply the practice to everyday life."
