A Benedictine Resource
I've been working my way through Benedict's Rule: A Translation and Commentary by Terrence G. Kardong. Since there are lots of folks out there either already commited to the Benedictine Order or who are contemplating such a move, I thought I'd mention this book since it is so very good. It has the full Latin text, an English translation, and a very scholarly, thoughtful, and orthodox running commentary. It's a hefty tome (641 pages), but worth it. It's available from The Liturgical Press.
