Product Description

Exploring the patristic understanding of the sacraments, prayer, and discipline of solitude, Hall follows the early monastics through their involvement in baptism, the Eucharist, unceasing supplication, and the "call to the desert." Weaving his own experiences into the fathers' practices and teachings, he helps close the gap of centuries and challenges contemporary Christians to faithful living. 312 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.

Publisher's Description

Christopher Hall invites us to accompany the fathers as they enter the sanctuary for worship and the chapel for prayer. He also takes us to the wilderness, where we learn from the early monastics as they draw close to God in their solitary discipline. The focus of this book is not liturgy but more broadly worship in its corporate and individual dimensions. We enter into the patristic understanding of baptism and the Eucharist. And we come under the instruction and discipline of great spiritual teachers of prayer. In two previous books, Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers and Learning Theology with the Church Fathers, Christopher Hall has ushered us alongside the church fathers as they study the Scriptures and plumb the depths of theology. In this survey of the spiritual life of worship he informs and challenges Christians in faithful living today. Hall weaves his own experiences into his observations of the fathers' practices and teachings and so helps us close the gap of the centuries. Readers will enjoy a rich and rare schooling in developing their spiritual life.
