Second printing of Tweetable Rule

A book by Sister Joan Chittister that one reviewer called a “tweetable version” of The Rule of Benedict is now back in stock after selling out its first printing in less than six months. The review from WATER (Women’s Alliance for Theology, Ethics and Ritual) explains the popularity of A Little Rule for Beginners: Insights into Benedictine Spirituality.

“The 6th century original is a spiritual classic and this 21st century Tweetable version will have a long life as well. Joan Chittister takes bits of the Rule and riffs on them in artistic, poetic, some might say musical ways as the reader’s soul soaks up her wisdom and her openness to what is still to be explored. Buy, pocket, read, relish.”

Daily morning praise at the monastery begins with a reading from the Rule—and Sister Joan, who entered the monastery at 16 years old, is steeped in its wisdom. This small book—it measures 5” x 4”—is one of several commentaries that she has written on the Rule and on Benedictine spirituality demonstrating its relevancy for the contemporary seeker and for the pressing issues of the times.

Other books include Wisdom Distilled from the Daily: Living the Rule of St. Benedict Today, The Rule of Benedict: A Spirituality for the 21st Century, The Monastery of the Heart: An Invitation to a Meaningful Life, In God’s Holy Light, and Radical Spirit: Twelve Ways to Live a Free and Authentic Life.
