Abstract:

This book is a introduction to the early hermits. The author breaks through our preconceived ideas of the Desert Fathers to reveal them in a new light: as true and worthy role models for us in our modern lives, who have much to teach us about dealing with the anxieties, uncertainties, and sense of isolation that have become hallmarks of modern life. They especially embody valuable insights about community, about how to live together in an intimate and meaningful way.
