Wicks, noted psychologist and best-selling author of Riding the Dragon and Everyday Simplicity, offers with an insightful guide on how the wisdom of the ancient desert monks can help contemporary readers grow in personal freedom and authenticity.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Total Conversion   Feb 2, 2007
In his latest work, Dr. Wicks advises those seeking wisdom from the desert fathers and mothers to "read, underline, write out what we've underlined, study, think...absorb, practice." I suggest the same approach to Crossing the Desert. From the first chapter, Wicks continually draws parallels between the fourth century culture the Christian ammas and abbas wished to escape and that of the twenty-first century. He illustrates his points with stories from his personal and professional life and passages written by spiritual leaders and seekers of all faiths. With deeper, more focused reading we see that he is writing about total conversion and the freedom it brings, not simply offering a few add-ins for our bag of spiritual tricks.
