St. Anthony the Great, Pray for us!

An inspiration to all that desire the Kingdom of Heaven. I always learn something new from this Saint's life and example. Praise God for giving us such a humble example to follow.

In detail and concise

Interesting and in detail narration of the life of St Anthony. I have always wanted to read about the desert fathers. I enjoy it and I would look for more books on the desert fathers. Many details of Anthony’s teachings, it makes you wish you could try the desert peaceful experience of ‘life in the desert.’

An Amazing Story Of A More Amazing Man

Jim Ellis made St. Anthony’s life come alive in the 21st century, I love stories of the Holy Fathers and this is one of the best, St Athanasius gave wonderful tribute to his ally in Christian Orthodoxy.

There is a reason this is still a classic

St Anthony's life is exemplary even in our modern world if not especially for us. There was nothing in his life extraneous to his purpose of serving Christ. His mind, heart, body, home, friendships and habits were very simple, in keeping with that singularity of purpose. Oh that I could pare my possessions, loves and habits down to such purity. He demonstrates as well that a saint's life is not one of perfect tranquility but of frequent struggle against evil.

Good Book

It's good and only a pity that a non-victorian translation is not yet available. I highly recommend this audiobook.
