    DescriptionIn this original manifesto, bestselling author Joan Chittister delivers a roadmap based on the ancient Rule of Benedict that stands as a practical model upon which to build a satisfying life, despite the seemingly limitless--and at times meaningless--supply of options in the modern world. By giving spiritual seekers--individuals, couples, families, and small groups--a new opportunity to live a better life from the very center of their world without ever having to withdraw from it, Chittister's new approach redefines Benedictine living for modern-day seekers while remaining firmly rooted in its values.

    Review quote
