To Love as God Loves: Conversations with the Early Church
Being a Christian means learning to love with God's love. But God's love is not a warm feeling in the pit of the stomach. It has definite characteristics we learn in the course of our life, in the behavior and teaching of the early monastics, as we ponder over what we can say about God as God deals with us, and finally, as we model our own lives on what we have learned.

This is the first of Bondi's non-technical books, and I think continues to be one of her best. This book walks us through the world of the desert monasticism, and how that applies to the life of faith today. Bondi has a very accessible style, and I like this book very much. Read full review

Bondi thoroughly understands the world and writings of the early church monastics, and translates their wisdom and stories into a work modern Christians can understand. So lovely and gracious and kind. Read full review
