Desert Father: In the Desert with Saint Anthony
"Cowan's elegant meditation upon Christian asceticism is the perfect antidote to the consumerism and hedonism of modern culture. His search for wisdom in the Egyptian desert reminds us that another way of life, based upon love and self-sacrifice, is available to all who are willing to seek it out. A valuable addition to the literature of spiritual reflection." Philip Zaleski, editor of the Best American Spiritual Writing series and author of The Recollected Heart.
