MEDIA REVIEWS
Rachel M. Srubas is wonderfully creative in making ancient desert spirituality relevant to a modern world. . . . This is a perfect book to accompany one during the Lenten season but is also appropriate any time one seeks spiritual nourishment.Catholic Library World
City of Prayer speaks powerfully and is beautifully written. It will make you smile, and at other times bring tears to your eyes. You meet colorful characters who behave outrageously as well as holy women and men who will inspire you. Wonderfully human, its honesty and practicality will speak to your heart.Spirit & Life
City of Prayer is a delightful conversation between the wise and colorful early desert ascetics and a contemporary seeker. Rachel is down-to-earth (the monastic understanding of humility) and real. Anyone who does not understand these ancient witty wisdom teachings, who fails to see their own journey in these early 'sayings' and 'stories' will come to recognize the echo of their story in Rachel's wonderful insights. Ultimately Rachel reminds us that all of our life, every encounter and struggle and gift encounter is prayer. This is all that the ascetics asked their followers to recognize. Deo Gratias.Laura Swan, OSB, Author of The Benedictine Tradition and The Forgotten Desert Mothers
