Publisher's Description

Wisdom From the Monastery offers Benedictine spirituality in essence: the timeless wisdom of the Rule and a basic orientation. This volume includes Patrick Barry's translation of the Rule of St. Benedict-widely regarded as the finest contemporary rendering. It is full of wise guidance that can be adapted to any individual circumstances and a centuries-old, proven guide on how to live in community with others. The Rule of St. Benedict has proven 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 and life balance have made it famous way beyond the monastic communities whose lives it has shaped for centuries. Today people from all walks of faith are finding that the Rule makes sense of their lives too. Wisdom From the Monastery simply consists of the Rule in a modern language and an introduction to the seven basic elements of Benedictine spirituality.
