A book of daily readings drawn from the writings of those who have lived the monastic life in all the major spiritual traditions of the Eastern and Western Churches: Benedictine, Franciscan, Orthodox, Carmelite, and others. For each month there is a specific theme: Starting Out, Seeking Guidance, Living With Others, Balancing Life and so on, through the year. Each theme is introduced by quotations from one of the great monastic Rules, and for each day of the year there is an excerpt from the writings of a huge variety of men and women stretching across the centuries, from 5th century Desert Mothers to Basil Hume, Joan Chittister, Thomas Merton and many more familiar and new names. This is a book for all who are looking to an ancient, rooted wisdom for practical guidance on living in the world today.

HANNAH WARD and JENNIFER WILD have produced numerous bestselling anthologies including The Lion Christian Meditation Collection

'These wise, down-to-earth and surprisingly humourous extracts from the writings of monks and nuns down the centuries, one for each day of the year, show that monastic spirituality is intensely practical and can speak to us with fresh insight today. Essential reading fro all those seeking a balance in today's fast-moving society.' Methodist Recorder, June 2007

'This is an attractively presented little book of daily readings from the writings of monks and nuns from St Anthony of Egypt to brother Roger of Taize. The short readings are arranged in monthly groups by subject for example, Seeking guidance, or Learning to listen...It could provide starting points for sermon preparation.'  The Reader, Autumn 2007
