MEDIA REVIEWS
This book helped me to make daily time alone with God a continued priority in my life.Christianity Magazine
. . . readers will be surprised at how important ancient monastic practices are for our modern lives. The book is well worth reading.Liguorian
Abbot Christopher outlines the wisdom of St. Benedict and suggests how it can be applied to people outside the monastery. His voice is tuned especially for those who are not sure what they believe but are looking for ways to find spiritual space and peace in the busy and often confusing modern world.Crux
There is much food for thought and prayer as Jamison details counter-cultural chapters on silence, contemplation, obedience, humility, community, spirituality and hope. In his explanation of each of these qualities of a Benedictine-informed life, he assists us to assess our own spiritual awkwardness, states of denial and compromise, lack of religious depth and avoidance of conversion. Whatever might be our failings or foibles, Jamison supports us in creating a meaningful and theologically grounded sanctuary for everyday living.Catholic Studies
Few will be able to simply read this book, but instead will find themselves absorbing it.Writing Works
There is much to be appreciated at this buffet. What's most appealing is that it is written for a significant and growing audience: the unchurched spiritual seeker. . . . There's much to recommend this book to that unchurched seeker who's looking to learn more, or simply someone who may be interested in contemporary applications of monasticism. It all depends, I guess, on what you're hungry for.American Benedictine Review
At one time, spirituality and religion were the same; not today. One can experience spirituality without being a member of a religion, and many have turned away from Christianity or other religions looking for some kind of spirituality that will make them feel good or give them whatever they need in life. Abbot Christopher talks about those who shop for spirituality and shows that religion and spirituality should not be separated. Abbot Christopher's last chapter us on hope; the Rule of St. Benedict encourages all followers not to lose hope in life and, especially, in life everlasting. . . . Finding Sanctuary is highly recommended to those looking for more in life than the rat race.Curled Up With A Good Book
