For readers who are seeking a more purposeful life in today’s world, a time of cataclysmic social upheavals and global transformations. Old structures are breaking down, and individuals, couples, families and small groups—through their private disciplines and intentional lifestyles—are trying to shape new ways of meaningful living for themselves in the shell of the old. This book is a guide for seekers of any faith or none looking for meaning while standing in the midst of a seething, simmering world of options—spiritual as well as secular—and feeling overwhelmed by choices. It offers a template to guide us through the maze of empty promises and useless panaceas the modern world has to offer, and suggests a practical model upon which to build our own lives. For Benedict of Nursia, the sixth-century founder of communal monasticism in the West, the answer lay in simply living our daily life well. All of it. Every simple, single action of it. He turned the ordinary into an experience of the extraordinary, a union with the God of the Universe in the here and now.Joan Chittister
