Publication date:
Number of pages:
ISBN: 9780819221568
In the same format as Holy Companions and the forthcoming Praying with the
Anglican Saints, this book includes summaries of the thoughts and spiritual
approaches of the Desert Mothers, along with spiritual practices based on
their writings. Although scholars have paid attention to the Desert Mothers,
general lay audiences have only had access to writings by the Desert Fathers.
Unlike most of the scholarly books on the market, this book popularizes the
writings and the thinking of the Desert Mothers of the early Church, and applies
them to contemporary life. 126966 Mary C. Earle
