Product Description

Why would a single, non-Catholic college professor want to spend his vacations at monasteries and with hermits?

"Because there is so much to learn there!" writes Randy Harris. "When I decided I wanted to learn how to pray, I sought those who had spent their lives praying. When I wanted to learn to 'be still and know that he is God,' I sought those for whom silence is a way of life. As I sought stability and balance, I found a way of life that has endured for 1500 years. I didn't exactly want to become a monk or hermit, but I did want to learn what they know-and it has become a life-changing journey."

"Spiritual formation" has become a popular buzzword. But we might wonder what it means to be spiritual in our situations-and most of us don't have time to join or visit a monastery!

With gentle humor and keen wisdom, Randy Harris shows how the monastery can come to us. More importantly, he welcomes us into that life that is rich, blessed, and joyful. The life that God intends for us. The secret of the easy yoke that Jesus promises. Sharing stories from his own walk with God and insights into Scripture, Randy invites us into a richer, fuller, and deeper life-one lived in intimate relationship with God.
