Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0814633846, Hardcover)

In the Prologue of his Rule, St. Benedict maps out the road that leads to heaven; he lays the foundation for life in a community that seeks God. The themes that are present throughout the Rule obedience, humility, prayer, fear of the Lord, eternal life are grounded in the Prologue.
By reflecting on the Prologue one verse at a time, Michael Casey, OCSO, delves into the richness of meaning that can be found in Benedict s words. These reflections, first given as talks and made available on his community s web site, build a bridge between the sixth-century text and twenty-first-century Christians. In The Road to Eternal Life, Casey invites readers to reflect on the Prologue in light of their own experiences, to seek the road that leads to salvation.
