A first glance at A Vision of Peace would suggest that it might be of limited interest. Why should anyone but Benedictions be interested in a detailed explanation of the Rule of their founder? But this quick judgment would be rash indeed. Here is a book for all religious and even possibly for heads of families. The writing is pointed, straightforward and clear, gentle but firm. Aimed essentially at projecting the full meaning of St. Benedict's rule for those who have embraced the life of religion, A Vision of Peaor has a style which is in the best tradition of Catholic writing. No aspect of the spiritual life is overlooked. Every religious will benefit from a close reading of Father Tunink's exposition. It will be especially valuable to aspirants to the religious life and even to those who just think they may have a vocation. This is indeed a source for seeing what fullness there is to be had in the vision of peace as exemplified in the dedication of one's life to God under the rule of St. Benedict. Would that religious were treated to more books of this quality.
