Overview

How to Be a Monastic and Not Leave Your Day Job: An Invitation to Oblate Life by Benet Tvedten

You don't have to live in a monastery in order to live like a monk. Oblates are everyday people with jobs, families, and other responsibilities. Sometimes they are Catholic, sometimes not. In today's hectic, changing world, being an oblate offers a rich spiritual connection to the stability and wisdom of an established monastic community.

Informative and inspirational. A look inside the monastic life and how the Rule of Benedict can be applied to every day life in the "outside" world by those who are looking for a balanced life.

I enjoyed it but I was expecting a more 'how to' as stated in the title. It was not instructional which is what I expecting. I do however plan on buying more books written by this author.
