My new book, Building the Benedict Option: A Guide to Gathering Two or Three Together in His Name
, will be published in the fall of 2018 by Ignatius. If you'd like to hear a few stories about the book (and to know when I'll be visiting a town near you when it's out!), you can sign up here for sporadic email updates. And you can place your preorders now!
In the meantime, here's the precis:
As a twenty-something convert to Catholicism, Leah Libresco knew she didn’t have the charism to be a hermit. But with friends moving constantly for jobs and graduate school, it felt like, by default, she was supposed to be Catholic all alone, praying with others only at Mass. Building the Benedict Option
is half spiritual memoir, half handbook for how to get the chance to “gather two or three together in His name” and draw on and support fellow Christians.
