The reading selections are from a variety of authors, as far back as the desert dwelling monks and as recent as Thomas Merton.
It's not a book to sit down and read, it's a book to use as a guide for meditation. Reading it brings insight into the monastic tradition, breaks down a lot of presuppositions and prejudices, and brings the reader into a feeling of peace.
