Publisher's Description

A shrewd observer, a master psychologist, an accomplished raconteur, Dorotheos is also a learned man with a prodigious capacity for assimilating in an organized harmony the wisdom of his precedessors in the life of the Spirit. Yet he is far more interested in humbly serving his brethren than in discoursing about the recondite aspects of the hescyhast experience. His genial candor makes him the ideal spiritual master to introduce modern readers to the rich spiritual universe of the deserts of Egypt, Palestine, and Syria.

Editorial Reviews

. . . no text I know renders the ascetic spirit more accessible to the modern reader.
Religious Studies Review

Dorotheos lets us glimpse a little of the life in his distant time and place . . . He doesn't write about theological abstractions, but about the passions and sins that every one of us recognizes in ourselves, monk or lay. We know what he is talking about.
