       Desiring Life is the third book in Norvene Vest's series on Benedictine spirituality for people living in the world today. This book addresses issues of relationship, particulary our relationship to the world (wisdom); to ourselves (virtue); and to each other (ethics). Vest translates insights from the Rule of St. Benedict and other early monastic writers into the common language we share today. Vest asks questions of pressing concern today, such as: What is the 'good life' we seek? How can we learn to live with integrity and compassion, despite the growing gap between public ethics and narrow self-interest? What sort of people should be as Christians try to be? Through the recovery of insights from the past, Vest believes, we can draw closer to the heart of our desire for life in all its fullness--union with God.
