"Using the Christian tradition of solitude, silence and contemplation as her foundation, Huston offers one of the best books available on living the simple life."
-- Publishers Weekly , starred review nbsp; "This book will give solace and guidance to those who, like Paula Huston, have felt the interior call to simplicity, the intense gravitational pull of the God within."
--Bruno Barnhart, Camaldolese monk and author, Second Simplicity nbsp; An Invitation to a Simple, More Peaceful Life Is leading a simple life possible in a world of chaos and complexity? Driven by this searching question, Paula Huston, a busy forty-something college professor, wife, and mother, embarked on a spiritual journey to find a peaceful, less cluttered kind of life. The Holy Way: Practices for a Simple Life is the fruit of Huston's arduous search. Two discoveries sustained her: that she herself could experience simple living just as a nearby community of Catholic monks did and, more important, that she could find the keys to such a life in the lives and writings of the great monastic saints. Drawing on these discoveries, Huston examines a variety of measures that point the way toward the practical, day-to-day simplicity of a life that so many desire.
