In This House of Brede, which served as the basis for a 1975 made-for-television movie, is an extraordinarily sensitive and insightful portrait of religious life. The story, written by Rumer Godden, centers on Philippa Talbot, a highly successful professional woman who leaves her life among the London elite to join a cloistered Benedictine community.

This edition of In This House of Brede includes an introduction by best-selling Christian writer Phyllis Tickle, as well as discussion questions designed to help deepen the reading experience for both individuals and reading groups.
