Chapter Summary

The author is a Benedictine monk and has been so for the last thirty years. The religious tradition he grew up with operated within the metaphor of salvation. His religious world was fraught with fear and anxiety-fear of a judging God and constant anxiety about the secret impulses that continued to surface in his body. He soon realized that this way of living, presented as a meaningful existence, was not working, was not delivering the very thing he wanted-life, and life in abundance. This model left him feeling a stranger, and no less lonesome inside. So he determined to find a model that would provide the life he yearned for.
