Struggling with her return to the Christian church after many years away Kathleen Norris found it was the language of Christianity that most distanced her from faith Words like judgment faith dogma salvation sinner even Christ formed what she called her scary vocabulary words that had become so codified or abstract that their meanings were all but impenetrable She found she had to wrestle with them and make them her own before they could confer their blessings and their grace Blending history theology storytelling etymology and memoir Norris uses these words as a starting point for reflection and offers a moving account of her own gradual conversion She evokes a rich spirituality rooted firmly in the chaos of everyday life and offers believers and doubters alike an illuminating perspective on how we can embrace ancient traditions and find faith in the contemporary world, Why would a married woman with a thoroughly Protestant background and often more doubt than faith be drawn to the ancient practice of monasticism to a community of celibate men whose days are centered around a rigid schedule of prayer work and scripture This is the question that poet Kathleen Norris asks us as somewhat to her own surprise she found herself on two extended residencies at St John s Abbey in Minnesota Part record of her time among the Benedictines part meditation on various aspects of monastic life i The Cloister Walk i demonstrates from the rare perspective of someone who is both an insider and outsider how immersion in the cloistered world its liturgy its ritual its sense of community can impart meaning to everyday events and deepen our secular lives In this stirring and lyrical work the monastery often considered archaic or otherworldly becomes immediate accessible and relevant to us no matter what our faith may be br br A New York Times bestseller for weeks br A New York Times Notable Book of the Year, No description available, No description available
