In 2007 Ian Stackhouse wrote his book, ‘The day is Yours’; a protest against the culture of speed both in the culture at large, but also in the church itself. Rooted in the monastic liturgy of the hours, the book argues that it is important for Christians to recover a more biblical rhythm in which work, rest, relationships, worship and prayer are held together in creative tension.

The book has now been translated into Dutch, and on the occasion of it’s release, Ian Stackhouse has been invited to talk about the book and how he looks back on it now; is it a possible and meaningful way to live contemplative ‘In the City of Man’? Erik Borgman will give his view on this theme and you can join in for the dialogue moderated by Arnold Smeets. The program will be conducted in English.
