Most Christians are aware of two traditions, the Latin West and Byzantine East. There are two additional and equally important traditions that need further study by most westerners, the Alexandrian and Syrian.

Matthew the Poor (Matthew elMaskeen) is one of the best known recent Desert Fathers and a significant writer of the Coptic\ Alexandrian tradition.

This excellent work is readily accessible to all English speakers and brings the Light of the East and the Egyptian Desert to us.
