Every worldview has attendant disciplines. Late capitalism, as much to any Christian community, has its habits shaped by distinctive patterns of desire. Down the centuries, Christians have sought ways to live that line up with the vitality of their faith. We chart a course here through Kierkegaard, Bonhoeffer and Hauerwas. The route is distinctively shaped by pre-Reformation concerns as well as by Protestant ones, and in this it is deeply ecumenical. What, we ask, represents the excellence of the monastery as a community of formation in the present day? The answer will not necessarily be any literal monasticism but it will bear a strongly analogous relationship to it. We see this, not least for the Church of England, in the monastic roots of much of its approach to communal theological education and the question of our present willingness, or not, to live by its lessons.
