Reforming the Monastery
Protestant Theologies of the Religious Life
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Those interested in the new monasticism in Protestant churches will find in Fr. Peter's book a helpful introduction to the theological underpinnings and historical origins of this movement."
--Fr. Luke Dysinger, OSB, St. John's Seminary
"Protestants are generally supposed to view monasticism negatively. Yet those who, like Greg Peters, have actually read Luther and Barth know the truth is not so simple. In this scrupulously researched, theologically rigorous, and elegantly written book, Peters analyzes Protestant reactions to monasticism with a breadth of vision and ecumenical openness typical of a former student of Donald Bloesch. It should become the definitive word in English on Protestantism and monasticism."
--Abbot Gregory Collins OSB, Dormition Abbey, Jerusalem
