Description: The 365 daily readings from "Wisdom of the Cloister" offer the serenity of monastic life to a wide audience for the first time. Especially intended to serve the general reader, this collection surveys the whole of Christian monasticism. Included here are a full range of writings from the early and contemporary monastics (Anthony of the Desert, Thomas Merton, Bede Griffiths, Thomas Keating, Kathleen Norris), various orders (Franciscan, Benedictine, Carthusian, Trappist), and the differing denominations (Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant).

Each page contains both a selected reading as well as background information on the author and the tradition the selection represents. John Skinner, author and translator of many great texts of spirituality, invites the reader to peruse these varied writings in the immediately accessible custom known as lectio divina. This style of reading, traditionally favored by monks, works on the idea that inspired texts should not be approached in the usual way, but as a means for hearing God speaking through and within the text. Using this prayerful, openhearted style, readers may glean personal insights that are uniquely relevant and meaningful to their lives.
