Book coverDesert Father: A Journey in the Wilderness with Saint Anthony by James Cowan

The subject of a zillion paintings entitled “The Temptation of Saint Anthony” was actually a real person: a hermit monk—the first of all Christian monks, they say—who lived in Egypt in the fourth century. James Cowan’s trek to find the real Anthony takes him deep into the Egyptian desert and into the lives of Anthony’s spiritual descendants. It’s a research project that becomes an odyssey of self-discovery.
