Synopsis

In an age of terror, it is difficult to look into the eyes of a stranger without cringing. We carefully peruse our fellow passengers before we board a plane. We bolt our doors and feel safest when we are with our close friends and family. It may seem natural, given the devastating recent attacks on our country, but isn't there a better way to live?

From the authors who delighted thousands of readers with Benedict's Way: An Ancient Monk's Insights for a Balanced Life comes a new book with a bold challenge: Radical Hospitality: Benedict's Way of Love. In this book, Lonni Collins Pratt, a Catholic laywoman, and Daniel Homan, a Benedictine monk, blend their unique voices to present a radical vision for a kinder world.

According to Pratt and Homan, Benedictine hospitality is not cozy and comforting, but risky and world-rattling. It is not about "sipping tea and making bland talk with people who live next door or work with you," but it is about mutual reverence--"a call to revere what is sacred in every person ever born."

For people of all faiths and walks of life who seek to live with compassion and generosity, Radical Hospitality provides an essential introduction to the timeless wisdom contained in Benedictine spirituality. It will appeal to the general reader as well as to the serious spiritual seeker as a guide for personal study, retreat, or group discussion.
