In No Moment Too Small, Norvene Vest focuses on three of the foundations of the Benedictine way of living the gospel: silence, the exploration of Scripture and other Spiritual writings (lectio divina), and the hours of prayer. These essentials of Benedict's sixth-century rule of life offer a practical framework for spiritual growth in our own day, a path to God through the events and people of ordinary lives. In her discussion of lectio-on-life, for example, Vest provides insight on the reading of our lives as the "text" in which we find God's Word written in the ordinary events of daily life. Exercises in silence, holy reading, and prayer for individuals or small groups follow each chapter.

Norvene Vest, PhD, is an Episcopal laywoman, Benedictine oblate, and respected teacher and guide. She has graduate degrees in political theory, theology, mythology, and depth psychology. Her earliest ministry was as a public servant, which gradually shifted to spiritual direction and adult faith formation. Among her published writings, Dr. Vest is the author of six books on Benedictine spirituality for the common life. Her passion is the relationship with the holy Mystery, through traditional practices (especially Benedictine spirituality) in dialogue with contemporary theology. Learn more at composury.com.
