Item Description...
In the fourth century, thousands of men and women fled into the Egyptian desert, seeking to recapture the passion of the earliest Christians through lives of prayer and solitude. As records of wisdom and purity of the "desert fathers and mothers" spread throughout the Roman Empire, Christians streamed to the caves of these desert hermits, seeking counsel on the interior life. The hermits' ascetic practices and sagacious words were a shining witness to a living faith that could be woven into the fabric of everyday life offering timeless wisdom for both monastic and lay Christians. This volume contains Athanasius' famous The Life of St. Antony, St. Jerome's The Life of Paul the Hermit, and the collected sayings of many of these spiritual teachers. Encouraging humility, patience, prayer, introspection, and love, the desert fathers and mothers teach today's believers that deep contemplative practice opens the door to eternal wisdom for daily life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Calm, contemplative, and enlightening.  Jun 18, 2003
An excellent introduction to the Desert Father's spirituality, lives, and way of life. Great for the beginner or the advanced in the study of God, love, solitude, contemplation, and faith. This should be on the shelf of every church library; Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant, and in the homes of every person who attains to a higher love and true communion with God.
