Benedict of Nursia hungered for a "better way" to God and lived that example with his Rule. Six hundred years later, Bernard of Clairvaux appeared on the scene to return Western monasticism to its roots. Both Benedict and Bernard challenge seekers to reduce the God-and-us relationship to its essence, just as Christ's gospel dictates, by way of love, pure and simple. Available now.
