A new edition of Joan Chittister's classic text of 'The Rule of Benedict.  This edition is beautifully done with images and sound.  Download instructions are given in the book of accompanying Gregorian chants.

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."

"The Benedictine way is the spirituality of the twenty-first century because it deals with issues facing us now - stewardship, relationships, authority, community, balance, work, simplicity, and prayer.

"Chittister's interpretation...arranged according to the tree-cycle reading Benedictines accomplish each year, is one of the best I have seen.  Her commentary is itself a modern reworking of the Rule for contemporary Christian." - The Episcopal New Yorker
