Women’s book from Paraclete Press rolls farther out into Barnes & Noble stores — connects with Benedictine principles

At Home in this Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises rolled farther out into Barnes & Noble stores this past month due to brisk initial sales.

Author Jerusalem Jackson Greer’s title released in May and received excellent publicity including an interview with Bible Gateway, a CBA UNITE feature, and an interview with Marketta Gregory that was syndicated in the GateHouse Media Newspapers and websites. Reviewers have called At Home in this Life, “another Benedict Option” – read more here.

This fall, Paraclete plans expanded marketing for this book including a newly released online study guide, outreach to women’s groups in churches, and author-led webinars.

With a foreword by Shauna Niequist, and endorsements by Tsh Oxenreider and Sarah Bessey, Jerusalem’s book has connected with many women who also live in the crossroads of disaster and delight, celebration and mourning, the ordinary and the extraordinary. She shares how a discovery of the spiritual practices in the Benedictine tradition (stability, silence, prayer, manual labor) and stories from the Bible on the lives of David, Ruth, Timothy, Esther, and Noah, and the words of Jeremiah, transformed her, and helped her to ‘make herself at home’ in the midst of a beautiful, messy, amazingly tender, and completely unbalanced life.
