The Rules of Benedict and Basil show us how to live in community with one another. Though written for monasteries over 1500 years ago, these Rules contain timeless wisdom about Christian community.
Greg Peters has combined and reorganized the Rule of Benedict and the Rule of Basil for modern readers so that we too can meditate on, enjoy, and apply the insights of two of the most influential Christians ever to have lived.
