Do you sometimes feel unhappy or jealous and don't know what to do? A long time ago, Anthony (c. 251-360 A.D.) felt like this, but decided to do something about his sad heart. He gave up everything he owned and set out with nothing to find answers. His journey took him into the desert of Egypt, where he came face to face with many temptations. But through being quiet and alone in the wilderness, Anthony discovered the power of God's love in his heart. For many years Anthony taught other people how to live with love, joy, courage, and peace. People can still learn from him today, if only they pay attention to his good life and teachings. The answers are also there for you. Will you take the journey with us?

Saint Anthony the Great tells the story of the father of Christian monasticism, who lived in the Egyptian desert just two hundred and fifty years after Jesus' lifetime. This beautifully illustrated book will capture the attention of young readers and help teach them about Anthony's struggle to acquire a pure heart. Here is a timeless story about the victory of good over evil, inside us and around us.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3-A picture book biography of a Christian leader who lived a life of consecrated solitude and who is considered the father of organized monasticism. The book focuses on Saint Anthony's spiritual life and struggles as well as his kindness toward others. Chryssavgis and Rouvelas cover the basics: the loss of Anthony's parents when he was 19, his decision to give everything he owned to the poor and to wander the desert, the ways in which he was tormented by the devil, and the choice he made to live alone for 20 years, pondering how to become closer to God. The text is adequate, with some thoughtful insights about religious life, and is complemented by Brent's brightly colored paintings and decorative borders. Those who want more information about Saint Anthony will appreciate the end matter. Though this is a merely serviceable work, it provides an introduction to an important Orthodox Christian figure. VERDICT Buy for collections where Orthodox Christians are asking for materials.-Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CAα(c) Copyright 2011.
