5.0 out of 5 stars very readable 29 April 2014

very interesting to see how diverse the saints are. very much about anthony discerning spirits. if you look at how he lived and saint francis lived, there are similarities and big differences. basically it's about saint anthony's life as a recluse. as with all the saints they pray a lot, and are at their best doing so. anthony very much sees the world around him a distraction from prayer and solitude.
a bit of old english which you might find a bit confusing. i hardly read any books before getting a kindle. i'm slightly dislexic i think. find the kindle easier than a book. a good easy read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure 28 Dec 2013
This is a true treasure and a must read for anyone who is interested to learn more about cultivation. True demon is not outside of us but they are our greed, hatred and ignorance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Take the pursuit of God and spiritual warfare more seriously. 5 April 2014

I certainly did not know much about this ancient monk prior to reading the book. I ran across a reference to it and thought that it might be inspiring. It certainly was. This is a man who had means but gave it all up in order to focus on his devotional life with God. He lived alone with meager means. He was steeped in Scripture. He was successful in engaging in spiritual warfare. He did great battle with demonic powers. He had the gift of discernment. He was aware of doctrinal controversy and spoke out against Arianism. As his life progressed, he became a sage with tremendous insight and wisdom. Even though he lived alone on a mountain, many people came to see him. Many were healed. Many demons were cast out. Many gained wisdom. He never wrote a book nor created any art, yet his influence widened over time. In a day when we are obsessed with social platforms and social media, it is refreshing to see that God himself gave a wide influence to someone who did not seek it. Instead, Antony's influence was widened as spirituality was deepened. I was inspired to pursue holiness through prayer and meditation in a deeper way.
