An introduction to discover some of the foremothers in the Christian faith, and an invitation to practice their way of living.

At the dawn of Christianity, holy women went into the wilderness of the deserts of northern egypt to give themselves totally to liver of prayer.  Here, Episcopal Priest and retreat leader Mary Earle explores the spirituality of these little known "desert mothers" from the fourth century. Earle invites readers to learn ways to apply the wisdom of these ancient women today.
