In his classic "Second Book of Dialogues, " Pope Gregory the Great lionizes Saint Benedict as hero and casts him predominantly in the role of miracle worker. Yet in his Rule, Benedict comes across more as a practical community organizer and premier spiritual father. In this volume, Terrence Kardong offers a fresh take on Gregory the Great's classic. He alternates between translated sections of the Diablo's and his own commentary. Crisp and direct, and infused with his wry and ever-present sense of humor, Kardong's writings sure to build up the spiritual life of readers and, equally important, to make them love St. Benedict.
"Terrence Kardong, OSB, is a monk of Assumption Abbey in Richardton, North Dakota. He is editor of "American Benedictine Review" and author of "Benedict's Rule "and "Day by Day with Saint Benedict, " both published by Liturgical Press."
