Ancient Faith, Future Mission: New Monasticism as Fresh Expression of Church

Edited by Graham Cray, Ian Mobsby and Aaron Kennedy

The combination of Fresh Expressions and the explosion of interest in monastic spirituality is resulting in the emergence of new monastic communities inspired by historic patterns of religious life, but reframed for the contemporary world. This worldwide movement is seen as a radical expression of ecclesial community and was named in Mission Shaped Church as one of the leading new forms of church that would help people reconnect with Christianity. A new monastic community may be a dispersed group of families and individuals meeting to share meals and worship, it might be a group connected virtually; it might be a youth group exploring monastic spirituality. In this book, leaders of traditional religious communities and emerging 'new monastic' communities tell their stories and reflect on how an ancient expression of being church is inspiring and shaping a very new one. Included are many well-known contributors: Ian Adams, Shane Claiborne, Andy Freeman, Tessa Holland, Ray Simpson, Philip D. Roderick, Abbot Stuart Burns and others exploring intentional living in the UK and the US.
