The Rule of Benedict for Beginners
By

Rating
Benedictine spirituality is simple and down to earth. Not only does the Benedictine lifestyle fit well within the walls of the monastery, its interpretation of life is also suitable to other forms of society. In The Rule of Benedict for Beginners, Wil Derkse reveals how elements from Benedictine spiritualty and the Benedictine lifestyle may be fruitful outside the monastery to strengthen the quality of societal living and working. The Rule of Benedict for Beginners is a useful source of life orientation and lifestyle for those interested in living by the Rule. It applies the monastic vows to life within organisations and examines the valuable elements of Benedictine leadership and Benedictine time management. Chapter one sketches Derkse's own acquaintance with the Benedictine lifestyle. Chapter two examines the basic patterns of Benedictine spirituality in order to translate these patterns into nonmonastic contexts. Inspired leadership, listening, decision-making, fruitfully prospering human resources, and sensible time management are themes of the remaining chapters.

Reviews

Professor Derkse's little book is a worthwhile read for any person striving to put into practice the characteristically Benedictine principles of simplicity and integration as a means to live a more satisfying life - a life that is fruitful because it is meaningful.Pastoral Music
