Product Description
"God is our home but many of us have strayed from our native land. The venerable authors of these Spiritual Classics are expert guides -- may we follow their directions home". -- Archbishop Desmond Tutu

At a time when more and more readers are rediscovering their spirituality and seeking to integrate the divine into their daily lives, Vintage is proud to inaugurate its own series of spiritual classics. As the series title suggests, these books include the mainstays of the Western spiritual canon along with some of its less familiar masterpieces. They have been selected both for their historical importance and for their continued relevance to successive generations of readers. Printed in handsome uniform editions, with specially commissioned introductions by distinguished contemporary commentators, Vintage Spiritual Classics present the cumulative wisdom of the centuries to contemporary readers.

Ever since St. Benedict formulated these rules for monastic living in the sixth century A.D., they have guided generations of Christian monks. Yet Benedict's injunctions to obedience, humility, and contemplation also provide an invaluable model for anyone who wishes to live more simply, more humbly, and in greater accord with the impulses of the heart and spirit.
