The Universal Monk is about the monk in all of us. In today's fast-paced and often fractured culture we all seek inner peace and unity. The Universal Monk is a powerful way for everyone of any state of life to find it. It is written from John Michael Talbot's experience in public international ministry and as founder and spiritual father of the Brothers and Sisters of Charity, a new integrated monastic community of celebates, singles who can marry and families who live in an integrated monastery or in their own homes.

It walks us through a treatment of the current issues that face us, such as the great recession, political polarisation and the sex abuse crises in the church, with real spiritual and lifestyle answers that come from a fully unified and integrated life in God. If you are tired of the 'same old, same old', this book is for you!

JOHN MICHAEL TALBOT was born in Oklahoma City in 1954 and grew up in Indianapolis. He moved to Arkansas and founded the Brothers and Sisters of Charity at Little Portion Hermitage in 1982, which he still serves as ministerial general.

After a successful career with Sparrow, in 1992, John Michael founded his own record label, Troubadour for the Lord, and is now recognised as one of Catholic music's most popular artists.
