Conversation with Saint Benedict
The Rule in Today's World
AUTHOR: Terrence G Kardong
The Rule of Saint Benedict meets contemporary culture - the connection point and the sticking point between the two are the focus of Conversation with Saint Benedict. Renowned Benedictine Scholar Terrance Kardong considers various aspects of modern culture that he considers worrisome and the light that Benedict's Rule might shed on them for Christians today. He also takes up specific aspects of the Rule itself that he finds difficult to deal with. The book, then, offers a rich interplay that does not shrink from recognizing both strengths and weaknesses in our culture as well as in Benedict's own ideas.Among the many topics that Kardong tackles are:
Laughter and tears, security, work, economics, monastic garb, cell phones, zeal, hierarchy and channel surfing.
