Benedict's fifth-century guide to humility offers the antidote to the
epidemic of stress and depression overwhelming modern young adults.
But the language of The
Saint Benedict is medieval, and its most passionate advocates are
cloistered monks and nuns. How then does this ancient wisdom
translate into advice for ordinary people?
candor, humor, and a unique approach to classical art, Father
Augustine, a high school teacher and coach, breaks down Saint
Benedict's method into twelve pithy steps for finding inner peace in
a way that can be applied to anyone's life.
upon his own life experiences, both before and after becoming a
Benedictine monk, the author explains every step, illustrating each
chapter with color reproductions of sacred art that he has
embellished with comic flourishes. The winsome combination is sure to
keep readers from taking themselves too seriously—which is already
a first step on the path to humility.
