This moving study grew out of Fr. Stead's conviction that the Rule of Saint Benedict -- an ancient collection of instructions on the attitudes, behaviors and observances that constitute a truly spiritual life -- is relevant to the realities of the late twentieth-century. Fr. Stead creates an in-depth portrait of Benedict, weaving passages of Gregory the Great's Life of Saint Benedict and of the Rule with his own commentary.
The result is a work that sheds light on how to live the gospel without being called to the priesthood or religious life.
