Judges' and contributors' comments

Cally Hammond: Loved more by others than by me; but I have read it and recognize its power and wisdom. The guidance for common living is truly precious.

Jenny Monds: The Rule of St Benedict has been so influential, and still provides a guide for living a Christian life. It is one of the bestselling books at Sarum College Bookshop.

Mark Oakley: Benedict’s invitation to a holy and humane balance in our Christian discipleship is equally as realistic about human beings as about God.
