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 counterculture 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 flourish. -- Backcover
