by | Read by John Polhamus

Philosophy & Religion • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Narrator John Polhamus renders this noteworthy classic about the life and times of St. Benedict of Nursia with careful pacing and an authentic tone. His delivery is crisp and clear, natural and unaffected. He begins with a prologue of scripture to support the principles of “One Rule” that St. Benedict is known for. He depicts St. Benedict, touted as the saintly father of monks and the monastic way of life, with genuine sincerity as he relates the how and why of their spiritual community in an easy-to-listen-to voice. Polhamus defines the four types of monks and what typifies each lifestyle with a convincing clarity that simplifies complex ideas for the listener.
