New Monatic Breviary

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : May 2, 2007

Well…Brazos is interested. Sort of.  If they’re going to run with it, they want to get me to co-edit it with a well-known neo-monastic like Shane Claiborne or Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove.  I understand that this is the way that the industry works, but it is still a bit deflating and frustrating.  Nevertheless, if it works out, I’d love to work with others neo monastic folks on a project that could benefit lots of people.

    I’ve told them that I’d be comfortable working with Jonathan, but not Shane. Why? Because Shane has become a brand. Jonathan, for as well connected and influential as he is, isn’t a celebrity. Working with him wouldn’t fuel the fire of branding and name commodification.

    I’ve also suggested inviting 1-2 more people into the collaborative process.

Got something to say?
