March 21, 2007

The Rule of St Benedict, just 9000 words long and written 1500 years ago, has proved to be one of the most timeless, influential and lasting of all texts. Its realism about human character, its extraordinary practical wisdom and its original recipe for creating a work/life balance have made it famous way beyond the monastic communities whose lives it has shaped for centuries.

Today many secular people are finding that the Rule makes sense of their lives too.

This book simply consists of the Rule in a modern language and an introduction to the seven basic elements of Benedictine spirituality.
