Item Description...
Overview
The famous life and great miracles of St. Benedict, for all children 10 and up. The story of poisoned wine, saving a boy from drowning, raising one from the dead, plus, how he founded the Benedictine Order, his sister, St. Scholastica, etc.

Publishers Description
"I have had enough of this new Abbot " announced one of the monks at Vicovaro. "Yes, Abbot Benedict thinks we have to be always obeying those rules he set up " agreed another. "Remember the good old days when we could each do whatever we wanted?" put in a third. "I've had enough of him too," agreed yet another. And the feeling was spreading. Although Benedict knew that the monks were no longer his friends, he never guessed how bitter they felt toward him. Soon an evil plot was hatched. If the Abbot were secretly served some poison-in a glass of wine, for instance-the monks would soon be rid of the troublesome Benedict. One day at dinner the wicked plan was put into action. The server came in as usual with a glass of wine to set before the Abbot. It looked the same as it always did, but the monks knew that tonight it was poisoned. What was going to happen now? This book gives the answer. It also tells how Benedict founded the Benedictine Order, how he fought the devil, how he saved a boy from drowning, how he raised another from the dead-as well as about his twin sister who was a nun. All in all, this is the wonderful story of the life and miracles of the great Saint Benedict, the famous man known as the "Father of Western Monasticism."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Man of Peace  Aug 26, 2007
I came to interest in St. Benedict after the current pope took his name. Obviously this saint has been an influence on many throughout history not only to those have adopted his namesake, but also to the thousands of monks that have served in his monestaries.

As is the case with many saints, St. Benedict left a life of privilege at a young age to pursue the religious life. Originally he only wanted to become a hermit. But after befriending a monk, he found himself drawn to a monestary where he quickly became a leader. The author chronicles many of his great works and miracles in the chapters that follow.

This is a handsome book with illustrations that add to the story though the book seems to be written more as a children's/young adult's book. The chapters are short and the stories lack thoroughness, yet I feel as though I learned about St. Benedict through this book.
