There are all sorts of books out there about monasticism: it's history, it's necessity, it's benefit to the church, etc.

As a monastic aspirant, this is the first book I have found that presents and addresses the issues that one has to confront in order to make an intelligent decision when it comes to:
"Is this really my calling?"

I have made several trips to monasteries in order to verify my call. This book has crystallized many of the thoughts that I have had about my future as a monastic.

Next time I visit the monastery, I shall be able to ask my Spiritual Father intelligent questions!

The author, His Grace Bishop Mettaous, is a Coptic Bishop and Abbot of St. Mary Monastery, El-Sorian in Egypt where he has lead the life of a monastic for at least 25 years.
