Having had the opportunity to hear Fr. Raymond for a number of years on Sundays at St. Benedict Monastery in Bristow, VA, I was delighted to find that his book conveys the same level of intelligence and good sense as his homilies. Fr. Raymond is a Benedictine monk and his writing shows the balanced spirituality of the Rule of St. Benedict. This is not a simple "how to do it" book, but rather an exploration of "why it has been done for centuries" and "why it is beneficial to people now."
