Overview

Living Faith Day By Day: How the Sacred Rules of Monastic Traditions Can Help You Live Spiritually in the Modern World by Debra K. Farrington

A full spiritual life goes beyond Sunday mornings and bedtime prayers, encompassing the way we work and play, eat and breathe, love and learn. Since ancient times monastic communities have recognized this and used guidelines to focus on the sacred in all aspects of life and to strengthen their love of God. Today many people continue to find inspiration-and clear, concrete guidance-in these ancient "rules." This book is designed to help you discern your spiritual path by drawing on the traditions of ancient and contemporary religious orders to form your personal rule of life. With fascinating historical details and modern-day examples, Debra Farrington shows us how to discern and express our spirituality through prayer, work, and spiritual community, care of our bodies, service, and hospitality.

Definitely one of the better books on the subject. It is an easy read and in very down to earth ways shows the reader about the monastic life and teaches you how to make it your own. The author's wisdom and warmth really come across.
