Item description for Saint Benedict: A Rule For Beginners: Excerpts from the Life and Rule of Saint Benedict, edited with an introduction and a commentary by Julian Stead...
Overview 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 a depth portrait of Benedict weaving passages of Gregory the Great's 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.
Publishers Description After an introduction and some selected passages of Gregory the Greta's Life of St.Benedict, the author presents excerpts of the Rule, intertwining his own commentary. For monks and nuns this book can be a rediscovery of Benedict's message, while for lay-people it sheds light on how to live one's daily commitment to the Gospel.
