Description of Athanasius: The Life of Antony of Egypt by Albert Haase O. F. M.
"Taking one of the best--and also oldest--spiritual classics, Athanasius's The Life of Antony of Egypt, [Albert Haase] has made it accessible to us in this paraphrase. Lively, engaging and sometimes humorous, his new paraphrase of this very old work turns it from something alien into something inviting, convicting and relevant. His occasional call-out comments explain and clarify the document just when the reader needs it most. We owe Albert a debt of gratitude for doing such good work for the church."
"When Antony of Egypt relocated to the desert, he reimagined spiritual formation for Christians in a time of upheaval. For those of us who sense that Christianity is in a similar time of transition, Albert Haase has done a brilliant job of unleashing the prophet's distinct voice to speak to us in the present."
"Thanks to scholars like Albert Haase, O.F.M., we are the first generation of English readers to have translations of the Desert Fathers and Mothers. Now comes the hard work of teaching what they taught. But what is still required is to live this text in our lifetime."
