Contemporary Christians seeking spirituality for their busy lives are discovering a surprising source of wisdom-the sixth century Rule of St. Benedict. For more than fifteen hundred years the Rule has been a unique source of wisdom. Now this lovely book provides a primer for all those who wish to explore how Benedict's vision can help them live a more balanced and centered life.
Each section focuses on one aspect of the Benedictine way:
A brief introduction to the particular virtue is followed by eight short statements of Benedictine wisdom, suitable for quiet reflection and prayer.
The charming illustrations are reminiscent of the illuminated manuscripts of medieval times, inviting readers to a slower, more contemplative look at the text-and their lives.
This gateway to the timeless and practical spirituality is a lovely daily prayer companion for oneself as well as a special gift for any occasion.
