St. 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 RULE by St. Benedict is medieval, and its most passionate advocates are cloistered monks and nuns. With candor, humor and a unique approach to classical art, Father Augustine, a high school teacher and coach, breaks down St. Benedict’s method into twelve pithy steps for finding inner peace in a way that can be applied to anyone’s life. The author explains every step, illustrating each chapter with color reproductions of monastic art that he has embellished with comic flourishes. The winsome combination is sure to keep readers from taking themselves too seriously–which is already the first step on the path of humility. Paper.
