The Rule of Benedict: A Spirituality for the 21st Century by Joan Chittister, O.S.B. is a classic religious text which combines the timeless wisdom of Benedict of Nursia's Rule with the perceptive commentary of a renowned Benedictine mystic and scholar.

In The Rule of Benedict: A Spirituality for the 21st Century by Joan Chittister, O.S.B., the author boldly claims that Benedict's sixth-century text is the only one of great traditions that directly touches the contemporary issues facing the human community:

  • stewardship
  • conversion
  • communication
  • reflection
  • contemplation
  • humility
  • equality

Tracing Benedict's original Rule paragraph by paragraph, The Rule of Benedict: A Spirituality for the 21st Century by Joan Chittister, O.S.B. expands its principles into the larger context of spiritual living in a secular world and makes the seemingly archaic instructions relevant for a contemporary audience.

A new foreword, updated content, an appendix, and a recommended calendar for reading the entries and commentaries make this an invaluable resource for solitary or communal contemplation.
