New: Introduction to the Desert Fathers

A recent announcement from Wipf and Stock Publishers:

An Introduction to the Desert Fathers
by Jason Byassee

The desert fathers wanted to get away from a church co-opted by empire and a Christian faith grown cold and listless. Byassee’s introduction to the Sayings of the Desert Fathers is offered in the hope that readers with lives quite different from those third- and fourth-century desert dwellers might nevertheless come to imitate their lives of poverty, chastity, and obedience; and more importantly, that they might grow more imaginative and passionate in their following of the same Lord.

“Jason Byassee is the perfect guide—an intrepid all-terrain interpreter in the heart of the desert.”
Timothy Larsen, Wheaton College
