 About the Book 

Hundreds of tourists visit Blue Cloud Abbey every year, and many more have read Kathleen Norriss accounts of this South Dakota landmark, but few have seen it as it is portrayed here. Brother Benet demystifies a way of life that, to many, seems harshMoreHundreds of tourists visit Blue Cloud Abbey every year, and many more have read Kathleen Norriss accounts of this South Dakota landmark, but few have seen it as it is portrayed here. Brother Benet demystifies a way of life that, to many, seems harsh and restrictive, but which he shows us can be liberating. The Rule of St. Benedict offers a vision of stability, honesty, temperance, and responsibility, all of which are in short supply in modern society. In a world where almost everyone is looking for the newest, the fastest, and the best, a monk lives a quiet life with a small group of men whose vocation may be the only thing they have in common.
