One correction to Amazon's description: This is a PAPERBACK book. I was disappointed in receving my used copy which I purchased through Amazon Marketplace. I was about to request a refund from my seller until I noticed it was Amazon, not my seller, who made the error. Please don't be disappointed if you order this used and receive a paperback copy.
Benedictine life is profoundly about being in community, and these monks blend contemplative and active life in a way that is somewhat relatable for people living "in the world," though indeed with an emphatic intentionality and discipline (through vows, rule, obedience, schedule, etc). A good monk chooses this life freely and lives it with love and integrity. The guidance given in the book is of a practical and exhortive nature. It is about the ordinary fabric of the monk's life--full commitment, humility, the great importance of prayer, obedience and keeping one's vows and rule of life, etc.
"The Intentional Life" is not a basic explanation of life at the monastery nor is it soaring mysticism. And it isn't written specifically to make monastic wisdom relevent and interesting for laypeople. But thoughtful readers serious about deepening their spiritual lives through greater whole-life commitment may find some very human yet soulful insights into what works for that and why and how.
It is a great pity, also that this book is published either with the original title or with the new title "The Intentional Life - The Making of a Spiritual Vocation", both of which are misleading in that they are stripped down versions of the original as published by Cardinal Hume. The new publishers have done us all a great disservice.
