"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.

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.
