More of a booklet than a book, this slight volume takes a quick romp through what we know of Benedict's life, including some of the more outlandish miracles attributed to him, a brief unpicking of his teaching, and a few snippets from his "Rule". There's enough here to pique someone's interest and to suggest that a more thorough-going look at his rule might be profitable for any Christian community and/or leader today.
