Athanasius, one of the most influential church fathers in history, records in his Life of Antony of Egypt the story of another extremely influential figure of early Christianity. In these pages we read of St. Antony's early life, his retreat into the desert and his famous spiritual battles. Albert Haase's work gives us access to a masterwork of spiritual formation, that we too might know the God of the universe as richly and deeply as Athanasius himself did. Also included in this volume are a few lesser known pieces of Athanasius's writing: Letter to Ammoun, Letter to Dracontius and Festal Letters 39.
