Publishers Description
From informal versions of the Rule of St. Benedict to Twelve-Step groups and Weight Watchers, the basic human need for guidance and structure in the quest for wholeness is palpable and real. Out of her long experience as a spiritual director, mentor, and teacher, Margaret Guenther offers a warm and sensible guide for "the rest of us" -- singles, couples, parents, extended families, members of churches -- to create a helpful and balanced rule of life to help us in our search for faith. She explores ancient and contemporary meanings for the classic vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, along with the distinctively Benedictine ethos of stability and conversion, pointing out the pitfalls of each. A series of short essays follows on the different elements of a rule of life -- such as authority, money, pleasure, stinginess, friends, enemies, and living through hard times. The final chapter gives practical ideas for crafting a rule of life that encourages each of us to grow, stretch, and flourish.

Reviews - What do customers think about At Home in the World: A Rule of Life for the Rest of Us (Christian Classics)?

Benedict would be proud  Jan 5, 2007
I received the book as an ordination gift and immediately knew I would have to use it in a small group study setting. The book is easy-to-read, but deeply thought-provoking. Guenther explains the fundamentals of a rule of life and why we need them. Each chapter has questions to help you journal or to spur on conversation. In our group, we wrote rules for ourselves or are in the process of writing them. One member realized that the process could be used for organizations as well as individuals and plans to use it that way. This book is a gem for anyone contemplating how to better their relationship with God, with the people around them, and the creation as well.
