A Little Rule for Beginners: Insights into Benedictine Spirituality

A Little Rule for Beginners: Insights into Benedictine Spirituality by Joan Chittister

Book Description

Since she was 16 years old, Joan Chittister has had the Rule of Saint Benedict—known as a "little Rule for beginners"—read aloud to her each day, as is the custom in her community. In this artistic and accessible small book, she distills the wisdom of all that listening, choosing just one line from each chapter of the Rule and then commenting briefly on the new understanding or new questions about God that it reveals.

Whimsical art on the monastic life by Marcy Hall adds delight to this book, which can fit in a pocket, a backpack, or a prayer space, and accompany you on your spiritual quest.
