Luigi Gioia is one of the most insightful commentators on monastic and priestly life today. In The Wisdom of St Benedict he shines the light of monastic spirituality on many aspects of the contemporary Church, including:

* Vocation
* Christian action
* Mission
* Leadership and Reform
* Prayer and Simplicity
* Trials and Suffering
* The Experience of God
* Listening
* The Practice of Theology

Practical, wise and informed both by lived experience and a truly impressive breadth and depth of knowledge, he concludes with a refreshing vision of a renewed spirituality for today's Church.

Luigi Gioia, OSB
