The desert, with its great emptiness and silence, has long been a symbol of solitude. In our spiritual lives, we sometimes seek such isolation as a means of abandoning ourselves completely to God. At other times, solitude comes upon us uninvited and unwelcome, as we find ourselves totally alone and desolate. In facing the silence and the vast expanses of loneliness, we test our courage, deepen our faith, and hear the voice of God anew.

This book explores the tradition and relevance of desert spirituality in the life and worship of the church today and offers a collection of pertinent writings by these and many other ancient and contemporary authors: Thomas à Kempis, Mother Mark Clare, Henri Nouwen, René Voillaume, Charles de Foucauld, Thomas Merton, R. S. Thomas.

The readings are ideal Lenten devotionals (but wonderful any other time of year as well) as you answer your own call of the desert.

John Moses' Anthology encourages the reader to sojourn on a wilderness journey for the time of Lent. By gathering writings from Christian authors throughout the rich tradition of the faith related to themes centered around the desert, Moses provides a framework for the traveler's time of preparation for Holy Week, Easter and beyond. Sayings are taken from the writings of the Desert Fathers, St. John of the Cross, Thomas Merton, Alessandro Pronzato, St. Teresa of Avila and many more.

Each day of the journey is given about a half a dozen sayings for the traveler to read and contemplate as a focus of their devotional time. Each week is given a theme beginning with The Call to the Desert and concluding with contemplation of the Divine Mystery.

As I have used this anthology of sayings for my Lenten journey Ihave been continually challenged and encouraged by the selections to seek God more deeply. I have been inspired by the words of those who have traveled these paths before me and have left their markers for me to follow.

I unreservedly recommend this book for anyone embarking on a journey of metanoia, whether that be during Lent or during any other time of the year.

Provides an overview. Gives sample of the spirituality as experienced and expressed by several indivivuals.. Could easily be used for meditation.

There is a prejudice we have toward things that are "old", not up to date. You realize how shallow this attitude is when you read the collected wisdom of so many people who have learned so much as they set out to learn more of God and His ways.

His ways for all of us and His ways for us personally. Because most of us can't take the time to make an intentional pilgrimage into the desert for an extended period of time, the discoveries and revelations they pass along to us are all the more precious.

It took me places I hadn't been before. Great points for reflection and to share with others. I'll come back to it in the future.

An extraordinary collection of thoughts and reflections on the desert experience! I'm very much looking forward to using this anthology as a touchstone for my own Lenten sojourn.

The Desert is one of the best anthologies of mediations for Lent that I have seen. The book has three explanatory chapters on desert spirituality and it's literature. The core of the book is a group of readings for each day of lent, the group rarely filling two pages.
The breadth of material selected is impressive. The fourth Wednesday of Lent, to pick any example, has writings of Charles de Foucauld, the desert father Abbot Moses, Alessandro Pronzato, and Thomas Merton. Many of the readings are merely a sentence. From the same example, one quote from Charles de Foucauld: "Love consists not in feeling that you love, but in the will to love."

The Desert This anthology infused my Lenten season with holiness and a step towards a deeper contemplation in the Mystery. Short daily readings from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day are broken down into themes of The Call to the Desert, Solitude, Testing, Self-Emptying, Encounter, Transfiguration and the Divine Mystery.
The words accompanied me as I shared the forty day journey with Christ. I found some of the readings especially helpful in preparing for reconciliation with God.
This is a book I plan to reread again next Lent. The readings have eternal significance and infinite insights.
