Sharing experiences and insights from his visits to monasteries over the years, popular speaker and university professor Randy Harris invites us into a richer, fuller life in the Spirit.Today there is a new hunger in the Christian community to live out radical and authentic faith in Christ. The days of easy answers and sound-bite Christianity are fading.Where do you go to find such faith being lived out? Randy Harris--popular college teacher and well-known preacher--turned to monasteries and hermits in his search for answers."When I decided I wanted to learn how to pray," he explains, "I sought those who had spent their lives praying. When I wanted to learn to 'be still and know that he is God,' I sought those for whom silence is a way of life. As I sought stability and balance, I found a way of life that has endured for 1500 years. I didn't exactly want to become a monk or hermit, but I did want to learn what they know--and it has become a life-changing journey."Most of us don't have time to visit a monastery or a hermit's retreat for a week or a month. So Randy Harris shows how the monastery can come to us. With wisdom, gentle humor, and captivating insight, Harris guides us on an unforgettable spiritual journey into a hidden world that very few will ever experience. You will learn prayer, humility, surrender, and quietness along this well-traveled path. And you may find yourself becoming a radical Jesus follower.
