    In this book Simon Peter Iredale presents the wisdom of the desert fathers along with his own prayers and uestions for contemporary readers Organized by groupings of statements into marks of spiritual wisdom charity temptation self control stillness prayer simplicity solitude and endurance the book is meant to be a study guide for group worship Unfortunately I was interested in a book directed at the solitary reader For this purpose I would recommend Helen Waddell’s book over this one Upon this reading two uotes stood out to me Mark the Ascetic on Temptation “Pray that temptation may not come upon you but when it does come accept it as something not alien but your own” 23Abba Antony on Endurance “A time is coming when people will go mad and when they see those who are not mad they will attack them saying ‘You are mad you are not like us’” 76I wanted to like this book than I actually did I fully respect and appreciate Iredale’s contribution and would strongly urge anyone who has not been exposed to the wisdom of these ancient sages to read this or any book on the subjectSee my other reviews here
