Even where people have given up on the institutional churches, monasticism retains an integrity and magnetic appeal.

Chapters include: The appeal of monasticism; Different varieties of monastic experience; Monastic spirituality and personal development; Monastic spirituality and relationships; Monastic spirituality and work; Monastic spirituality and community living; Achieving balance; and Working out a rule of life.
