For nearly 2,000 years, Christian mystics, martyrs, and sages have documented their search for the divine. Their writings have bestowed boundless wisdom upon subsequent generations. But they have also burdened many spiritual seekers. The sheer volume of available material creates a seemingly insurmountable obstacle.

Designed to introduce 15 spiritual giants and the range of their works, these volumes are a first-rate resource for beginner and expert alike.

Writings of John Cassian includes a significant sampling of writings by this monk and contemporary of Augustine. Excerpts of Cassian’s writings on prayer and commitment continue to speak practically and potently to readers 15 centuries later.
