Fr. Gabriel Bunge, a hermit with great spiritual discernment and profound knowledge of the Fathers of the desert, presents with masterly coherence this important unity between what one believes and what one expresses in the practice of prayer: a fascinating rediscovery of the valuable treasure contained in the teachings of the Church Fathers on the practice of personal prayer.

This small volume provides a glimpse of the invaluable patristic traditions related to prayer--personal and corporate. One must agree with the eremitic Gabriel Bunge when he states that '...for a Christian, the study of the holy Fathers can never remain merely academic patrology, which does not necessarily influence the life of the one who is studying.' The organization and erudition of this work are superior and effective in conveying the wealth of our common, though sadly now mostly abandoned, heritage as followers of Christ Jesus. As one interested in things-patristic, Bunge¿s Earthen Vessels has taken its place as a precious addition to my library. May God bless his voice even as he blesses the Church!
