The Center for Christian Spirituality congratulates Adjunct Professor David Keller on his new book released this past week, Desert Banquet: A Year of Wisdom from the Desert Mothers and Fathers. The wisdom of the desert fathers and others lies in their experiences of solitude, prayer, community life, work, and care for their neighbors. Their goal was authentic human life through openness to the presence and energy of God in Christ. The daily reflections in this new book introduce you to a variety of these early Christian mentors and offer commentary on the significance of their writings and wisdom for twenty-first century life. The book is available as either a paperback or ebook from Liturgical Press. Are you writing a paper for Prof. Keller's Jesus' Life of Prayer course this summer? Send him a note saying, "Well Done!"
