"Burton-Christie has written a beautifully crafted study of the collected sayings of the Desert Fathers, among the riches and most loved of early Christian monastic literature. With a firm mastery of the scholarship and uncommon sensitivity to the voices of early Christian Egypt, he opens to us the world of the ancient desert holy men and women." -Susan Ashbrook Harvey, Brown University. Douglas Burton-Christie is Lecturer in Religious Studies at Santa Clara University. He has traveled in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East exploring early and contemporary monastic life, thought, and culture.
