In order to address one of the most pressing issues affecting today's youth, Father Augustine Wetta looks to the past of the monastic community. With his signature humour and fresh take on classical art, Father Augustine explores the teachings of the Desert Fathers in search of an age-old, very effective strategy for dealing with the challenges of daily life.
These early Christians combined a knack for reading the Bible with an unyielding pursuit of truth, laying the groundwork for Christian discernment in the process. Their words are as applicable now as they were in the third century because to their incredible tolerance and sense of humour. The Desert Fathers will show you how to make choices in a manner that is calm, happy, focused, practical, and receptive to God's constant nudging.
Like in his bestselling Humility Rules, Father Wetta included colour copies of great pieces of art as chapter illustrations, but this time he adds comedic embellishments to them. If you're having trouble deciding between many viable options, you may use his discernment worksheet.
