(PUBOrbis)One hundred sayings from 4th- and 5th-century desert fathers and mothers are accompanied by brush stroke drawings by artist/theologian Nomura. The spare pithiness of the writings are echoed in the direct, forceful artwork. A wonderful gift for a reflective friend. 122 pages, softcover.
"As he was dying, Abba Benjamin taught his sons this: Do this, and you'll be saved: Rejoice always, pray constantly, and in all circumstances give thanks".
Each Christian who seeks God through prayer is continuing a tradition that began with the desert fathers and mothers of the fourth and fifth century -- simple peasants whose spiritual progress was marked by inner peace, self-control, poverty, patience, humility, and hospitality. Desert Wisdom contains some hundred "sayings" of the desert fathers, each accompanied by playful illustrations by Japanese artist Yushi Nomura. Bridging East and West, the simple truths of Desert Wisdom remain as fresh and vital to Christians today as they were to the disciples who first heard and recorded them.
