This delightful meeting of East and West introduces the sayings of the desert fathers and mothers, simple peasants of the fourth and fifth centuries whose spiritual progress was marked by inner peace, self-control, poverty, patience, humility, and hospitality. Their insights into the human condition and our relationship with God remain as fresh to Christians today as they were all those centuries ago.Nouwen, Author
