       In No Moment Too Small, Norvene Vest explored the Benedictine practices of silence, prayer, and holy reading as an essential framework for spiritual growth in our own day. In Friend of the Soul, she brings the insights of Benedict's Rule to the world of work. A gifted interpreter of Benedict's wisdom, Vest examines with empathy and clarity the plight of those who yearn for their work to be life-giving and meaningful, a service to others, and the place where they can experience the presence of God.

Vest brings Benedict's timeless perspective to three areas of discontent in today's workplace: the stress of performance, overproduction, and acquisitiveness. To these she opposes the Benedictine principles of vocation, being called to what we do; stewardship, taking care of what we are given; and obedience, serving one another in love. Each chapter concludes with exercises that could be the basis of small group reflection and discussion, or individual practice.
