'A very readable account of monasticism as it was recorded in the fourth to sixth centuries, and indications as to how we might appropriate some of the ethos of the desert fathers into our own lives ... A useful book for students of the desert tradition, for it serves as a basic history of the movement, as well as putting into context the major texts recording it ... In our secure society we often struggle to find the path of simplicity and renunciation of the gospel, so it is encouraging to hear Fr Ryrie urging us to use aspects of the teaching of the desert tradition as a measure of our response to Christ's call to us.' -- Sister Christine SLG 2012
