The Rule of St. Benedict focuses four essential areas of everyday life. These areas are relevant for every person, regardless of creed or denomination: prayer, work, community and rest. How do we apply these in the midst of our busy lives?
In The Good Shepherd award-winning author Robert Benson takes a close look at the meaning of community, according to the traditions founded by Benedict. How is it possible to live a life of community in today’s fragmented world? Does it mean that you have to retreat to some far-off place or join a set-apart group of people? No, explains Benson, as he offers St. Benedict’s wisdom with his trademark humor and elegant prose.
The Good Shepherd offers practical help to modern folks engaged in defining, discovering, nurturing, and sustaining community in the world in which they live.
