In Benedict in the World, Linda Kulzer, O.S.B., and Roberta Bondi share the life stories of many of the ordinary d extraordinary men and women Benedictine oblates -- members of the Benedictine family who live in the world.

Benedict in the World begins with an introductory chapter citing some reasons for an influx of Benedictine oblates into monasteries today. It then presents in detail a collection of the lives of nineteen significant Benedictine oblates who lived from the years 973 to 2000.

Nearly half the contributors are themselves Benedictine oblates and most of the others are professed Benedictine monastics. The combined effort offers support and inspiration to those who have loved their oblate journey and brings to light the lives of these outstanding lay monastics.

Editorial Reviews

"What a timely idea for a book! The oblate movement is booming, but the very concept of oblate is not so clear. This collection of short biographies goes a long way toward answering that question."
