Publishers Description

If you long for more meaningful connections to other people...
We've never needed this book more than we do right now. Most of us are involved with people all day long, every day, but rarely do we feel a part of real community in our lives.
In "A Good Neighbour" Robert Benson takes an intimate look at how others are defining, discovering, nurturing and sustaining life and love right where they are. Facing the confusing conflictions of modern life head on, Benson shows what it means to live in our neighborhoods, work at our jobs, be family, and friends, in ways that build places of relationship, love and mutual support.
Praise for Robert Benson:
"Robert Benson's writing reminds us of things we have half forgotten. It opens our eyes to things we have only half seen."
-Frederick Buechner
"Benson's writing is spare, simple, understated, always faintly humurous, and very forceful without seeming to be."
-Paula D'Arcy

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Subtle, but no less, full of Wisdom!  Aug 25, 2009
It would be easy to breeze through this book (only 87 pages) in a day, write down a few main ideas, and walk away. However, we would probably miss the most important point of the book. Community takes time to develop. His ideas are not earth shattering or some new gimmick to earn a few dollars. His ideas are based on the idea that community has value and is worth taking the time and risk to develop. Most of his thoughts we are probably aware of in some shape or form implicitly, but explicitly we are to busy to recognize or practice them in our own life.

Do not be intimidated by the subtitle, "Benedict's Guide to Community". You do not have to be familiar with the Benedictine tradition, or live in a monastery, to gain insight from this book. The subtitle speaks more to the context from which the author shapes his ideas than from the author's intended audience. The author's goal is to help people who live in the world outside of a monastery develop meaningful relationships and be a part of the community they live in.

So if you are yearning for authentic community I encourage you to read this book. It is full of a wisdom that does not come from the academic setting or consumer market, but from a life that has striven to live in community with others.
