Humility Rules: Saint Benedict’s Twelve-Step Guide to Genuine Self-Esteem
by J. Augustine Wetta
Review by Mary Dan
With candor, humor, and a unique approach to classical art, Father Augustine, a high school teacher, and coach, breaks down Saint Benedict‘s method into twelve pithy steps to find inner peace in a turned upside-down world. Based on his own life experiences, both before and after becoming a Benedictine monk, the author explains every step, illustrating each chapter with color reproductions of sacred art that he has embellished with comic flourishes that will make you chuckle!
As much as I strive for humility, this book revealed to me just how far I still have to go. I looked forward to reading a little bit each day… not only to be humbled further but also because the artwork made me laugh. Laughter is music for the soul!
