my book Cave Refectory Road: monastic rhythms for contemporary living is out today!
it's available from Amazon and from CanterburyPress
people are saying nice things about it....
This book is a gem. For those seeking to follow in the way of Christ today, Ian opens up the gifts and insights of religious communities in a very imaginative fashion. He manages the difficult art of writing in a way that has real depth but is still accessible and easy to grasp. It's heartfelt and inspired.

If you know someone (perhaps yourself) who is spiritual but not religious I strongly suggest giving them this book. Ian Adams has beautifully and unabashedly mined the Christian monastic tradition and found gold for our spiritually impoverished time. You can find no better guide.

wow morning bell is number 600 today. It's amazing to know that each day people across the UK and around the world are receiving it, pondering it, praying it and passing it on. Of course it's shaping me as much as anyone as I prepare and create it - or perhaps find it being created in me...
