Engaging A Rule of Life for Everyday Living,
This review is from: Living Faith Day by Day: How the Sacred Rules of Monastic Traditions Can Help You Live Spiritually in the Modern World (Paperback)As a spiritual director I am constantly meeting people who want to establish a rule of life. Often they may not realize that is what they desire but upon reflection they uncover a desire to establish some spiritual habits that will help them pay attention to the holy. Debra Farrington's book is a wonderful resource for this. Her historical research lays the foundation and is very helpful but what I really like is the way she helps a person reflect on their life and begin to take steps in the eight areas she suggests for engaging their own rule of life. I recommend this book for all spiritual adventurers but especially for those who are seriously seeking to grow in their spiritual lives by attending to their life as a "rule" for maturing spiritually.
