This book provides insightful commentary on the role of monastics in the Christian community. The author discusses how the "quiet" witness of the contemporary monastic in fact provides a very bright light to the world and gives an important reminder of the way of life that Jesus espoused. He also provides a sound theological basis (from the Orthodox viewpoint). The focus is on the monastic community at My. Athos.
