Though they were delivered by a Palestinian monk over 1400 years ago, the Discourses of Abba Dorotheos speak with refreshing immediacy to Christians in all times and places. In this series of talks given to his monastic disciples, Abba Dorotheos assimilates into a harmonious whole the wisdom of his precedessors in the life of the Spirit, Abba John the Prophet and Abba Barsanuphius. Each discourse explores a topic that is foundational to the ascetic life, vividly illustrating it with examples from the Scriptures, daily life, and Abba Dorotheos' deep monastic experience. For this reason, his discourses have aptly been called the 'ABC's of monastic life.' Indeed, his endearing wit and fatherly warmth make him the ideal spiritual master to initiate us into the path of true Christian life that flourished in the deserts of Egypt, Palestine, and Syria.
