He is also a Grammy and Dove award-winning, multiplatinum selling, contemporary Christian music pioneer and a best-selling author of over thirty books.


John Michael Talbot is the real deal. Here is a guide to new monasticism that exudes wisdom and carefully considers the questions that have arisen through decades of practice. If you're serious about asking what monasticism means for the church today-about what it means for you-read this book.Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove

This book presents one of the first views from inside a new type of monastery in the Church. Drawing on John Michael Talbot's twenty-five plus years in community, it breathes the air of honest-to-God daily experience of monastic life, and in a very complex type of community, comprising celibates, marrieds, singles, and children. The new monasticism, with its many ways of participating, provides access from wherever you are into an ancient contemplative path.Abbot Jerome Kodell, OSB
