Humility Rules: Saint Benedict’s 12-Step Guide to Genuine Self-Esteem

J. Augustine Wetta, O.S.B.
Ignatius Press, 182 pages

St. Benedict wrote his Rule in the sixth century as a guide for the monastic life, but it isn’t just for monks anymore; his wisdom provides sound spiritual counsel and practical advice for men and women living in today’s world as well. In this attractive volume, Father Wetta takes the Rule’s seventh chapter — often called St. Benedict’s “ladder of humility” — and enhances it with brief commentaries, excerpts, and “homework” exercises to help you put the virtue of humility into practice. Colorful, often whimsical art accompanies every chapter, and Father Wetta’s presentation is engaging, insightful and frequently humorous. Who knew seeking humility could be such fun?
