This ultimately joyful work is one of the few books available in English to deal exclusively with the problem of despondency (“acedia”) and how it can be overcome. Fr. Gabriel Bunge analyzes the views of Evagrius Ponticus, the famous "philosopher of the desert," on the dangers of acedia. Evagrius develops a sophisticated psychology which remains beneficial to us today. Indeed, this 4th-century Desert Father writes for Christians everywhere: for those in modern deserts--the city-- and for those subject to silent despair. This is a companion book to Dragon's Wine and Angel's Bread.
