The authorbreaks through our preconceived ideas of the Desert Fathers to reveal them in anew light: as true and worthy role models—even for us in our modern lives—whohave much to teach us about dealing with the anxieties, uncertainties, andsense of isolation that have become hallmarks of modern life. They especiallyembody valuable insights about community, about how to live together in anintimate and meaningful way. Williams makes these radical figures, who clearlyhave a special place in his heart, come to life in a new way for everyone.Thebook includes an appendix of selections from the teachings of the Desert Fathers.
