Product Description

Review

Like the Anglican-Roman Catholic Agreements, Esther de Waal's commentary is founded on the Gospels and on the ancient and common traditions and so is another important example of convergence of our two communions.
Fr. Eoin de Bhaldraithe

Esther de Waal reminds us that St Benedict was, in fact, a lay person. So the value of this book is that Esther is a lay person writing for lay people about what is the core of Benedictine spirituality. I believe that she has done something very important for all of us.
Cardinal Basil Hume

Esther de Waal has done it again - shown how amazingly relevant the Rule of St Benedict is to spirituality today. Countless people on the pilgrimage of faith will welcome and be changed and challenged by this beautiful blend of insights old and fascinatingly new. --Joyce Huggett

From the Back Cover

Esther de Waal in simple and practical terms, writing on how the Rule of St. Benedict has shaped her life, takes the reader chapter by chapter through the Rule. She details how profoundly biblical it is and how this text, which has formed the way of life of Benedictines and other monastics since the sixth century, also serves as guide for lay people of all denominations.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
