Full description of the book "A Life-Giving Way : A Contemplative Commentary on the Rule of St. Benedict":Around the year 500 St Benedict wrote a short guide for a small community who wanted to live together the balanced life of body, mind and spirit. The Rule of St Benedict became not only the foundational guide for monastic life in the West, but remains a potent spiritual resource that speaks authentically to countless individuals today. Fr Laurence Freeman OSB has described the text as the most important document for Christian living after the Bible. In this reflective commentary, Esther de Waal recognises the profoundly scriptural emphasis of St Benedict's writings. She shows how his Rule may be PDF read personally and prayerfully by people such as herself seeking practical encouragement and support in their following of Christ.
