View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In this book Esther de Waal shows how paradox is bound to be an essential dimension of all our lives. This is the theme of her meditiations. Set out in the form of reflective reading, they are based on the Rule of St Benedict, a guide which never offers easy solutions or gives simplistic answers. To an age which is endlessly searching for wholeness and for healing St Benedict brings a realism which is refreshing and liberating, for he helps us to accept that we have to go on living with tensions and contradiction all our days and that is precisely here that our strength and our hope of fullness of being lies.
