Man of Blessing

Praise for Man of Blessing

«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.” -Catholic Library World
