Item Description...
The Rule of Benedict has been a vital spiritual force for almost fifteen hundred years and has been a source of growth and renewal for millions of persons. The Benedictine way is timeless and, as the author contends, "is the spirituality of the twenty-first century because it deals with issues facing us now - stewardship, relationships, authority, community, balance, work, simplicity, prayer, and spiritual and psychological development."

Publishers Description
Benedictine Sister and prominent author and speaker Joan Chittister contends that Benedictine spirituality is the most effective way to address the core issues of the 21st century: stewardship, relationships, authority, community, balance, work, simplicity, prayer, and spiritual and psychological development.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Rule of Benedict; Insight for the Ages, by Joan Chittister  Jan 20, 2008
So glad to find this book of daily guidance once again. My other book has fallen apart from repeated use. The insights on the Rule from Ms. Chittister, help me to focus on the good in the world and the good in me, as well as what I have to offer the world. Often, as I read through the the Rule and the reflections on it, I see how my life has been influenced ever so gently by it.
I hope this reflection on the Rule never goes out of print.
I recommend it highly!
St. Benedict For Today  May 13, 2007
An excellent resource for anyone who wants to apply the Rule of St. Benedict, written in the 6th century, to today.
I am grateful this gentle text includes the traditional calendar of readings by which Benedictine houses around the world read our Rule through three times a year.

I am grateful Sister Joan presents so graciously her interpretation of each reading based upon her personal living and study of the rule for so long, an experience and wisdom which fills so much of her many courageous and brilliant Benedictine writings.

I am grateful for the great English translation of the immortal and ancient Rule which is included here, a translation which renders this simple rule comprehensible to us in our present situation of an alienated, individualized, selfish and secular nation where this holy and devoted and committed and avowed way of life seems so alien.

I am grateful each day to pray in this way with the strength and wisdom which ever flows from Sister Joan. For instance, this Sunday's reading of Chapter 45 included this commentary:

"Those who pray without knowing what they pray," Maimon Ben Joseph wrote, "do not pray." If anything, this chapter requires us to ask even to this day how it is that we can hear the Scripture but never study it, pray prayers but never contemplate the universal implications of them, go through rituals but never immerse ourselves in their meaning. How is it that we too pray without thinking, pray carelessly, pray poorly, or pray without thought? (p. 129)

Please join us in prayer in peace, that we may all together come home to the Kingdom, as Our Holy Father Saint Benedict writes in his Rule and desires for us all.

This Rule is welcome in any household. Read it at dinner with your own community this night, and each evening as the readings are ordered. We have so much to learn from this healing and holy Rule, of humility, holiness, submission, reading, work and prayer.
Rule of Benedict: Insights for the Ages  Jan 14, 2007
This an excellent book that has gem after gem of reflections about living a holy life. St. Benedict's words are quoted in original text (written more than a thousand years ago), and Joan Chittister's reflections give this text new insights and meaning relevant for today's world. We used it as a study book for a Christian Women's group. We started out highlighting words or phrases that "spoke" to us and ended up highlighting most of the Ms. Chittister's text!
The Best  Oct 12, 2005
By far one of the best and most honest writers we have today in the Catholic Church. If you are interested in becoming enlightened this is a writer to follow. Along with her books she also writes weekly for the Catholic Reporter.
