Athanasius: the Life of Antony

Athanasius: the Life of Antony
This book sets out a translation of The Life of Antony as written by Athanasius (c 295-373). Antony lived a life along the way, that is, under the insight that life is never-ending, a manner of progress without conclusion. The second part is a translation of a letter that Athanasius wrote to the Archbishop of Alexandria on the interpretation of the Psalms.

The desert monks in Egypt asked Athanasius to write an account of St Antony's life because they saw in it the ideal pattern for how to live the ascetic life, a life of steadfast devotion, complete dependence on God, and ruthless trust. Antony is often called the Father of Christian monasticism. By spending days out in the desert and even living for a while in a tomb, he exemplified the life of total dependence on God. His story is a riveting account of what a life committed to God demands and what it promises. C S Lewis notes that the mistakes of the old authors are not the mistakes we make, and that our continued attention to them enables us to see our own mistakes more clearly.
