Like a Pelican in the Wilderness

The sayings are of vital interest to us so that we might come to know what kind of life the Christian faith brought into the world. 

Like a Pelican in the Wilderness is a dialogue with the teachings of the desert fathers, to see what light they can shed on some of the central theological issues of today. these issues deal with the meaning of eschatological time, with what it is to live in the perspective of the telos, with how transparency and openness are to be attained, with the nature of personhood as the goal of human existence. Anthony, Macarius, Arsenius, and many others went into the desert to strip themselves down to the essential core of their being so that they could be transformed by God. Even if we cannot imitate them, they have much to teach us. -From the preface by Norman Russell

Stelios Ramfos was born in Athens in 1939 and studied law at the University of Athens and philosophy at the University of Paris. After teaching philosophy in Paris for several years, in 1974 he returned to Greece, where he established a considerable reputation as a thinker and exponent of a modern patristic-centered Orthodoxy. He has lectured at Athens College and is the author of more than twenty books on a broad range of themes, including Yearning for the One: Chapters in the Inner Life of the Greeks (Holy Cross Orthodox Press, 2011).
