Here is a review of the book so that you get a sense of what is is about.
“Although commitment to the traditional Christian virtue of stability isn’t easy, it is the best way to encounter both the God who invites humans into community — and, for the faithful, to do battle with the personal and societal demons that keep them from deeper faith. Cofounder of the “new monastic” community Rutba House in Durham, N.C., and author of God’s Economy, Wilson-Hartgrove argues candidly that his aim is to persuade readers to “reprogram your default settings” from mobility to stability. Drawing deeply upon the work and witness of Benedictines both ancient and modern, the writer also roots his argument in Scripture and snapshots taken from the economically poor community where he and his family have chosen to live. In a fortunate coincidence, this slim volume advocating the virtue of “growing where you are planted” appears at a time when more are inclined to challenge the necessity and advantage of multitasking. Wilson-Hartgrove tends to repeat his main point, but he does it in such an engaging and passionate way that readers will go away well-informed, if not converted.”
