Excellent, thoughtful and thought provoking commentary on the Rule of St. Benedict. A must for anyone who needs help seeing how to apply the rule to daily life in the world.

Esther de Waal is an acomplished author of a number of books on Monasticism and Celtic spirituality. In this thoroughly enjoyable commentary on the Rule, her skills and knowledge shine through, yet she manages to almost remain in the background and let St Benedict speak for himself.
She analyses the Rule chapter by chapter, and provides a commentary on each chapter of what it means for her and potentially for each of us. There is a short but useful bibliography, and additional notes on key chapters.
If you have not yet read the Rule of St Benedict, this book is an opportunity to do so - while accompanied by a knowledgable and sympathetic guide. St Benedict's Rule has managed to remain relevant for 1500 years - and is perhaps needed now more than ever. I would thoroughly recommend this book.
