Esther de Waal is a trail-blazing scholar in the Benedictine and Celtic traditions and has published extensively in both fields. Her interest in Celtic spirituality began at Cambridge University where she studied history and lived with Celtic scholar Nora Chadwick. While her husband served as rector of Canterbury, she became fascinated with the architecture of the cathedral (a former Benedictine foundation) and it was there that a deep appreciation for the Rule of Saint Benedict germinated. In Canterbury, while raising four sons, she studied and wrote on the Benedictine way of life. Her first, and hugely influential, book was Seeking God, first published in 1984.  It serves as a succinct introduction to this life-giving way and encourages people to discover for themselves the gift that Saint Benedict can bring to individuals, to the Church, and to the world.
