A Benedictine Spirituality of Work

Product Description
In this second book in her series on Benedictine spirituality, Norvene Vest brings the insights of Benedict s Rule to the world of work. A gifted interpreter of Benedict s wisdom, Vest examines with empathy and clarity the plight of men and women who wish for their work to be life-giving, a service to others, and the place where they can experience the presence of God. Vest brings Benedict s perspective to three areas of work discontent today: the stress of performance, overproduction, and acquisitiveness. To these she opposes three Benedictine principles: vocation, or being called to what we do; stewardship, or taking care of what we are given; and obedience, or serving one another. Her emphasis is on the words of Benedict s primary text and its application for people today. Each chapter concludes with extensive spiritual exercises and food for thought."
