This paper examines New Monasticism, a burgeoning movement of young evangelicals whose commitment to their Christian faith expresses itself through communal living, social justice, environmentalism, and non-violent activism. Rejecting American individualism and the privatization of Christianity, New Monasticism is marked by a pronounced religious communalism. Abandoning middle class comforts, these young members who view themselves as Christian revolutionaries have settled and formed communities in the most impoverished neighborhoods in this country to be agents of social change
