Are you feeling weary? Overwhelmed by the scope of your leadership? Do you wonder where your work is taking you or what it’s all for?
You’re not alone. Every generation reaches a point of rude awakening where what is demanded of us is more than what is given us. What we’ve been prepared for isn’t what we’re facing. What we’ve been taught is the good life really isn’t.
Jerome Daley points us to ancient wisdom that long ago exposed the limits of celebrity and achievement cults: the monastic tradition. It offers not only meaning and a critique of values antithetical to a good life, but also ways of living and leading that will fill you up and dramatically increase your impact. Your leadership is meant for more; Gravitas will help you find the path.

I wish I had read this book forty years ago!
by Ed Gore, president and executive director of Fairhaven Ministries
At the beginning of every major spiritual shift in history, God invites men and women into the desert to develop what Jerome Daley refers to as gravitas—a spiritual authority gained mostly by enduring loss in God’s presence. If you’re ready to abandon the endless frenzy of ministry expansion and willing to embrace the quiet rootedness of spiritual substance, Gravitas will lead you there.
