Description:New. ''It is not the desert that makes a desert father anymore...New. ''It is not the desert that makes a desert father anymore than it is the lion that makes the martyr, '' says Metropolitan Anthony Bloom in the introduction to this slim volume of sayings first collected in the fifth century. The sytematic sayings are organized by topics such as compunction, self-control, obedience, mercy, and long-suffering. Far from romantic, mystified visions of the spiritual life, here is hard-headed advice to fellow monks about the actions necessary to take in pursuit of humility and love. As one old man puts it: ''Spiritual work is essential, it is for this we have come to the desert. It is very hard to teach with the mouth that which one does not practice with the body. ''
