Michael Casey is a monk and scholar who has been publishing his wise teachings on the Rule of St Benedict for decades. In the pages of this book he turns to the particular Benedictine values that he considers most urgent for Christians to incorporate into their lives today. Eloquent and incisive, Casey invites readers to accept that Gospel living involves accepting the challenge of being different from the secular culture around us. He encourages readers to set clear goals and objectives, to be honest about the practical ways in which priorities may have to change to meet these goals and to have the courage to implement these changes both daily and for the future. Casey presents thoughtful reflections on the beliefs and values of asceticism, silence, leisure, reading, chastity and poverty - putting these traditional Benedictine values into the context of modern life and the spiritual aspirations of people today. "Strangers to the City" is a book for all who are interested in learning more about the dynamics of spiritual growth from the monastic experience.
