The Oblate LifeIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
How to be an Oblate! The ecumenical group of essayists who produced this ‘manual’ on Benedictine oblation provide a very helpful background to this rapidly growing form of monastic observance within the world and outside the monastery. The historical outline of the development of oblation, contributions on the organisation, spiritual formation and possible future progress of the oblate life, all add to the importance of this book. Clearly the guidance of Abbot Primate Notker Wolf has been crucial in recent years, especially as he was the prime mover of the first Benedictine Oblates World Congress in 2005. Expect great things in the future.
