Product Description

What makes a "good life" in today's fast-paced competitive world? In this book, beloved author and spiritual guide Robert Benson turns to the wisdom of Benedict, a sixth century monk. Compassionate and practical, Benedict created a rule of life--balancing prayer, rest, community, and work--that has helped centuries of people to lead more fulfilling lives. With trademark humor and elegant prose, Benson shares his own struggle to balance a spiritual life with the demanding roles of father, husband, and writer. Anyone who feels pulled in too many directions will find this book thoughtful, ancient wisdom for creating a life of deep meaning and joy.
