This book is a collection of answers to questions posed by the disciples of Saints Barsanuphius the Great and John the Prophet, two desert fathers of sixth century Palestine. The questions posed to the fathers are the questions of every Christian - today and always. The answers of Barsanuphius and John cut through fantasy and misconception to expose the nature of vices - feigned humility, judgment, idleness, lack of vigilance, carnal thoughts, vainglory - and provide advice to overcome vice and acquire virtue. The responses are practical and challenging, yet delivered always with love and the sole purpose of offering guidance to those searching for God.
