6 Carretto, Carlo The Desert Journal - 1954-55
London Fount 1992 0006276245 / 9780006276241 Soft Cover Very Good No Jacket 
A Very Good unmarked copy which has just a light touch of wear to front edges. Translated from the Italian by Alison Swaisland Bucci. First Printing. The book is one of the most important spiritual works of our time, by one of Christianity's most celebrated writers. Previously unpublished and first published in Italy in 1990, it is Carretto's own record of the momentous year in his spiritual journey. It begins with a boat journey to Oran in Algeria, having left his former life as teacher and activist, and committed himself to the religious life. H journeys on to El-Abiodh, at the edge of the Sahara, where on Christmas Day, 1954, he receives the habit of the Little Brothers of Jesus. Carretto then embarks on an extraordinary adventure of self-discovery based on a frank study of the Bible texts, and the journal records the gradual and painful stripping away of all the selfishness within himself, culminating in a new level of spiritual insight.
