Item Description...
Overview
In the first few centuries of Christianity, thousands of believers left the cities for the desert in order to seek a purer spirituality than they could find among the distractions of ordinary life. Their teachings began our rich heritage of Christian mysticism, and continue to inspire people today who desire to be transformed in the counter-cultural image of Christ. This collection of short sayings from the desert fathers and mothers provides a powerful word of wisdom for every day of the year. Together, they show us how the desert, or any place of inner solitude, is fertile ground for a relationship with God to grow and flourish.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
wisdom made accessible  May 24, 2010
Emulating what Eugene Peterson did for the Bible with The Message, Bernard Bangley has made the sayings of the desert fathers and mothers come alive. These wise sayings, which are difficult to access (at least for me) via direct translation, gain fresh vitality and relevance through Bangley's paraphrasing which conveys the ancient truth in a contemporary idiom that is both poetic and pragmatic. I have found this devotional book to be a wonderful daily guide; indeed, it is one of the most helpful guides for my spiritual journey I have found. I have purchased several to give to friends.
