I enjoyed Cloister Walk when I read it a few years ago and have used extracts in a service on the Psalms. I was struck by the commitment of moving through all the emotions in the Psalms service by service.


I loved the monastry I thought it was absolutly thought provocking and challenging especially to those of us from new church/charismatic/evangelical church backgrounds.
In the spiritual life of the monks I saw something that for a while I had been senseing was missing from my own spiritual life and also those of my freinds but that I cannot put my finger on completly.


i haven't read the books, but i am familiar with them. having spent times at a monastery i know that it's not an isolated incident where they are understanding a new place in todays world. the one i frequent is contemplating doing monastic retreats (within the rule of st. benedict). being in the states, if you find a way to purchase a copy of 'the monstery' i'd love to get ahold of a copy. shalom gavin
