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 theillumination 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 adelightful blend of legend and solid history.”
—Sr. LenoraBlack 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.”
