In God's Holy Light
Wisdom From The Desert Monastics
Sr. Joan Chittister 134pgs Hard Cover

The Desert Monastics, thousands of monks and nuns who lived in the Egyptian wastelands between the third and fifth centuries, have come to be seen as the Olympians of the spiritual life. Renowned spiritual writer Joan Chittister explores the sayings of the Desert Mothers and Fathers, finding wisdom from that ancient tradition that speaks to your life today. This popular introduction to a powerful source of Christian wisdom can be a companion to your own spiritual journey.

“One of the most well-known and trusted contemporary spiritual authors.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Our Benedictine Sister Joan has gifted us with a taste of the Sayings of the Desert Fathers and Mothers. As an elder herself, she serves us with thirty-five of the more than two thousand sayings from this tradition. Her commentary provokes and evokes us to do the same: Meditate on these sayings, listen, then take action. —Sister Meg Funk, O.S.B. Beech Grove Indiana

“This book raises a weighty question: whether spirituality really has anything to do with modern life in a pluralistic world. Joan Chittister—eminently qualified to do so—answers with a resounding “Yes!” Well reasoned and powerfully convincing.” —Brother David Steindl-Rast
