Man of Blessing: A Life of St. Benedict
"The difference with Butcher's book...is the exploration of Benedict's unusual life; his relationship with his twin sister, Scholastica; and the illumination of the saint's miracles. The book's readability will make it easy for patrons to escape into late Roman Culture and find peace in monastic simplicity."
-LIBRARY JOURNAL starred review
"This remarkable book is a delightful blend of legend and solid history."
-SR. LENORA BLACK, OSB, SPIRIT & LIFE
"Throughout the book [Butcher]...interweaves some good research that expands the context of Benedict's world and adds dimension to his character."
-AMERICAN BENEDICTINE REVIEW
"Butcher's life of St. Benedict is an excellent example of modern hagiography, written with imagination in a contemporary style based on historical facts and tradition."
