A leading spiritual writer recovers "the desert way of believing"--the spiritual pathway discovered by early Christian monks who lived in the Egyptian desert that is still relevant to Christians today. Alan Jones distills the elements that made this fully orthodox way of inner transformation in unique and important part of the early church. Refreshingly readable and filled with rich insights, soul making draws together the spirituality of modern literature and elements of psychology. Jones shows how the desert way can become for any spiritual seeker a soul-stretching means of experiencing the "wonder, mystery, and awe" at the heart of Christian faith. SC, 222 pages.
