Oneness considers the role monastic life plays within the life of the contemporary church.

Using a focus on the life, practice and history of the Shepherds Law community as a starting point, the book broadens the discussion to consider how such communities negotiate the boundary between the solitary life and life within their community.

With a foreword from Justin Welby and an afterword from Rowan Williams.
