At the dawn of Christianity, holy women went into the deserts of northern Egypt to devote themselves to lives of prayer. Almost forgotten in today's contemporary society, now The Desert Mothers provide you with the writings of these holy women and apply their spiritual practices to modern day life. Each chapter contains a summary of the spiritual practice and a closing prayer, making it a useful tool in your devotional practice.
This scholarly book popularizes the writings, spiritual approaches, and the thinking of the Desert Mothers of the early church and applies them to contemporary life.
