And it is magnificent. Very informative. Easy to read (or, in my case, listen to; actual reading, because of health reasons, is very difficult for me). Each sentence is pregnant with meaning. This book merits re-reading and re-reading; I expect each reading will yield even greater insights.
Unfortunately, the Kindle version is replete with technical errors; missing punctuation and typographical errors chief among them. I expect and readily excuse a few; no one is perfect, including editors and proofreaders. But this manuscript contains so, so many errors that it is distracting and detracts from the reading experience.
It saddens me that I could only grant this book four stars. The contents merit more. In any case, I will read this book again. And I have already purchased Kindle editions of other books by this same author that have been recommended to me. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about Benedictine Spirituality.
