The Radical Christian Life: A Year with Saint Benedict
Product DescriptionJoan Chittister, OSB
In this book, Joan Chittister encourages us to look at the life of Benedict. In an introductory essay she examines how the insights and values of the sixth-century visionary Saint Benedict can illuminate today’s search for a meaningful life. Then she leads us through the year, reflecting on twelve stories from Benedict’s life, anecdotes that give us glimpses into his soul. More than that, she draws from these stories daily thoughts for the development of our own spiritual lives in this day and age.
