Product Description

Those who seek God through prayer continue a tradition that began with the desert fathers and mothers of the fourth and fifth centuries-simple peasants whose spirituality was marked by inner peace, self-control, poverty, patience, humility, and hospitality. Here are a 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 today as ever.
