Listen, my child. I want you to put the ear of your heart to the solid ground of the masters wisdom (what I received, Im passing on to you). Its advice from a spiritual father who loves youthe sort of counsel you receive by letting it shape your whole life. Listening is hard work, but its the essential work. It opens us up to the God weve rejected by only listening to ourselves. If youre ready to give up your addiction to yourself, this message is for you: to listen is to equip yourself with the best resources available to serve the real Master, Christ the Lord.
So begins the famous opening paragraph of Benedicts Rule in Jonathan Wilson-Hartgroves vital, new, contemporary paraphrase. The entire text of the Rule is here plus a lengthy introduction from Jonathan, and detailed explanatory notes throughout that explain difficult passages.
The result is a classic re-introduced that will enliven any 21st century expression of religious community.
St. Benedict of Nursia (ca. 480-547) is considered the founder of Western monasticism.
Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove is a leader of the new monastic movement and co-founded the Rutba House community in Durham, North Carolina. An associate minister at St. Johns Baptist Church in Durham, he also directs the School for Conversion, a partnership among new monastic communities for alternative theological education. His other books include Becoming the Answer to Our Prayers, New Monasticism, and Gods Economy.
