Review: The Sayings of the Desert Fathers: The Alphabetical Collection (Cistercian studies 59)

User Review  - James - Goodreads

The gold-standard translation of this powerful witness to early Christian ascetic spirituality. These short anecdotes and proverbs remain highly edifying even 1600 years after their publication, and should be a classic of spirituality on anyone's bookshelf, regardless of faith background.
