Description

This collection of carefully selected passages from the Fathers of the Church offers us a simple way of encountering the varieties and subtleties of their thought. And, because it sets out a plan for meditation during the course of the year, it is a powerful tool by which we can make their spiritual discoveries our own.

Despite their occasionally alien ways of speaking, the Fathers present us with a practical and popular spirituality, a distillation of the life of the Christian community of which they were part. By coming to share in the discoveries of these giants of the past, we can ‘stand on their shoulders’ and, as a consequence, we will see more deeply into the truths of the Bible, into the heart of the Christian faith.

Beatifully presented in hard back with an attractive full colour dust jacket, it makes an ideal gift for anyone who values the things of the Spirit.

The collection is divided according to months and each one follows a theme, looking at issues vital for human life. This book is, therefore, a treasure-trove to be dipped into or, still better, to be used on a daily basis.
