Everyone longs to find true fulfilment, and more people are recognising that this cannot be done without reference to God. But we are not on our own, nor are we dependent solely on our own experience: we are able to draw from the rich wells that Christian tradition has to offer.
The words and deeds of the early monks that have been passed down to us are a clear and ever-refreshing source of spiritual life. The author has chosen 40 of them for this book. Written by monks who lived their longing for God in the solitude of the desert, they tell of the journey into the depths of their soul where they encountered both God and themselves.
Fr Anselm Gruen, born in 1945, is a monk and administrator of the Benedictine Abbey of Munsterschwarzach in Germany. He is well known as the author of numerous books on spirituality, as spiritual director and giver of courses.
