Book Review: Seeking God by Esther de Waal

Seeking God: The Way of St. BenedictSeeking God: The Way of St. Benedict by Esther de Waal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this off and on over the course of nearly a year. There were many thoughtful ideas and passages about living a Christian life intentionally. I thought the structure was intriguing – after the first two, introductory chapters, it was almost chiasm – listening and prayer, stability and authority, change and people, and balance and material things all work together.

I really loved the chapters stability-change-balance and the progression between them. I contemplated that knowing, not knowing, and pulling together quite a lot. The chapter on prayer was also quite helpful to me in learning about praying continually.

I’m very glad I read this and will likely go back to different places at different times.
