A Way in the Wilderness
The Compelling New Commentary on the
Rule of Benedict
by James Bishop
Available from Amazon and Bloomsbury Publishing
This is a chapter by chapter commentary. The author has written it not just with prisoners in mind but for all those who feel imprisoned, emotionally, physically or in any other way. The author has found the Rule to be a source of balance and freedom and a guide to being truly human which will never leave him.
From the Foreword by Laurence Freeman, O.S.B.:
“Because St Benedict’s Rule is so sensitive to exceptions, it might be said that it is the exceptions to the Rule that prove its value. What James found in the community of the Rule was what is essential to it — moderation, gentleness, honesty, regular prayer, unceasing mindfulness of God’s presence and our vocation to holiness.”
