  • Description
  • Reviews

The classic western translation of the sayings of the Desert Fathers, which have played a crucial role in the formation of Christian spirituality. These Fathers left teachings in the simplest of words, yet understandable only by the wisest, whose wisdom is born of humility.

“...the only English translation of the most complete version of the ‘Apophthegmata Patrum’, a compilation of sayings from the desert monks of Egypt, Syria, and Palestine in the fourth to sixth century, likely to be widely read and enjoyed for their own sake”—Choice

“a delightful insight into the lives of ascetics who left all to follow Christ... a very readable translation of an important collection of sayings”—Sisters Today

"...should be on the shelf of every library concentrating in spirituality"—Abba
