Publisher's Description

A Journey Back to Eden is a story of spiritual adventure: the account of an American monk who undertook to live for a year among the Coptic monks of Egypt. In their austere desert monasteries these monks maintain a tradition of Christianity that extends back to St. Anthony and the ancient Desert Fathers. Father Gruber's account -- by turns entertaining, poignant, and spiritually challenging -- pens a window on a mysterious world, saturated in prayer and silence, that functions still, as it always has, to awaken hearts to the mercy and power of God.
