Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0710307055, Hardcover)

The "sayings and stories" collected here undoubtedly represent a true record of the teachings and beliefs of the early Holy Fathers of Christianity as they existed in the late fourth century. Illustrating the monks' views on almost every conceivable subject pertaining to the theory and practice of Christianity -- patient endurance, acceptance of repentance, silent contemplation and insight into the vision of the mind -- they constitute a devotional legacy of the highest order.
