Editorial Reviews

[E]xcellent book. . . . We owe Dom Gervase and his assistants a great debt of gratitude for this remarkable achievement.

The Downside Review

What makes this book truly amazing is that the growth of the oblate community has been so prodigious that it has warranted this fine volume to be produced. Bound in a stunning blue and gold cover it is both a worthy gift for someone considering the Benedictine way of life and would be a substantive addition to any library that has contemporary material on the religious life.
Catholic Library World

A great resource for both long-time oblates and novices to oblate life, this book could also be informative to those interested in Benedictine spirituality or monasticism. . . . The Oblate Life is highly recommended to oblates, monks, nuns, and those interested in knowing more about Benedictines and others of the monastic tradition begun by St. Benedict.
