In the late third century, more and more people withdrew to the radical seclusion of the desert so as to live entirely for God under the direction of a spiritual father. Among the 'Desert Fathers' one figure is especially pre-eminent: Saint Anthony the Hermit. This book takes the reader back to the hour when monasticism was born and describes the life of those revolutionary Christians who sought God in the Egyptian desert. The focus of the book is the life and work of Anthony, whose experiences of the spiritual life have a timeless beauty and validity, even for those not called to live as a monk.
