Description

Terrence Kardong, OSB, has gifted us with a fresh new translation of and commentary on Gregory's Life of Benedict as depicted in the Dialogues. The commentary is interspersed throughout the book, following sections he has just translated. The net effect of this methodology is to create a much more rounded, continuous biography, rather than simply proceeding from Gregory's rather sketchy and sometimes dubious rendition. The author balances Gregory's Benedict with what we know from current scholarship. Father Terrence, master of the anecdote, displays once again his uncanny ability to express the profound with elegant simplicity. He has been able in this book to interweave the credible from Gregory with the believable of Benedict, as he reveals himself in his own Rule. The result, as always from Terrence's pen, is both readable and reliable, as well as entertaining and enjoyable.Fr. John Crean, OblSB, PhD, Coeditor of MAGISTRA: A Journal of Women's S
