50 short and easy to read chapters each focus on one of the verses in the Prologue to Benedict's Rule. Each one has so much wisdom and insight, but for me two of the best in the entire book are #2, OVERCOMING SLACKNESS, and #8, RISE UP FROM SLEEP. They both echo one of the recurring themes in the book, namely that walking the road to Eternal life takes perseverance and some effort.
Casey writes from the perspective of the monk, but any lay person will benefit richly from each chapter and be encouraged to walk with Christ in a more diligent and purposeful way. Just a couple of examples: .."the major obstacle to spiritual growth is inactivity, taking things easy, letting things look after themselves."(pg.15 "The sign of a holy upright person is a concordance among thought, word, and action." (pg.92)
One of the best yet from Liturgical Press!
addition to works about the Benedictine spirituality that should become a classic
