ldquo;In whatever place you live, do not easily leave it.rdquo; Abba Anthony In an age where we might email a friend in Africa, skype a co-worker in Brazil, andteleconference with people in different time zonesall in one daythe sheer speed of life can be dizzying. Like children stumbling off a merry-go-round, says Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, we are grasping for something to anchor our lives in a sea of constant change. InThe Wisdom of Stability, Wilson-Hartgrove illuminates the biblical and monastic understanding of why staying in one place is both a virtue, and good for you. ldquo;For the Christian tradition,rdquo; he writes, ldquo;the heartrsquo;s true home is a life rooted in the love of God.rdquo; When we cultivate an inner stability of heart by rooting ourselves in the places where we live, engaging the people we are with, and by the simple rhythms of tending to body and soul true growth can happen.The Wisdom of Stabilityis a must-read for pastors, leaders, and anyone seeking an authentic path of Christian transformation.

Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove (M.Div., Duke Divinity School) is director of the School for Conversion in Durham, North Carolina, where he is a member of the Rutba House new monastic community. He is the author of To Baghdad and Beyond and coauthor of Inhabiting the Church: Biblical Wisdom for a New Monasticism.
