The Vowed Life

The Renewal of Religious Life in Today's Church
  • By Sarah Coakley, Matthew Bullimore

Show More

Product Description
This landmark volume from an influential group of Anglican theologians and practitioners explores a phenomenon that is bubbling up in today�s church: the renewal of vowed religious life in both traditional and emerging forms. Justin Welby describes this movement as essential to the renewal of the entire church, and Rowan Williams argues that it is vital for the health of the nation.

The Vowed Life asks why such a movement is taking place now and considers its prophetic dimensions and the gifts it brings to the wider church, including the strengthening of parish life. It explores the theological, sacramental, communal and missional nature of vows, including vows of marriage and ordination and the particular vows of baptism under which all Christians live.

It includes an historical account of Anglican religious life by Peta Dunstan, reflections on new monasticism by Ben Edson and an afterword by Justin Welby. Together, these perceptive reflections offer a theological and pastoral resource for activating the laity�s sense of divine call and response, whatever their mode of life.
