    The following are excerpts from what is widely known in the Coptic Church as "Bustan al-rohbaan" (The Monks' Garden), also referred to in English as the "Paradise of the Desert Fathers". Bustan al-rohbann is not a single book, rather it is a collection of sayings and accounts written by and about the Desert Fathers of Egypt.   Question: "Should a Christian be a monk?" Answer: Although monastic tradition has been partially inspired by biblical figures such as Elijah, John the Baptist, and even Jesus Himself (during His 40 days in the wilderness), monasticism is not a practice promoted or even mentioned in the Bible. Monks and nuns follow man-made traditions that are not taught in the Word of God.

    A book edited by John LeClerc includes "Before Christ according to the Vulgar?a, 6". A book in English by Dean Humphrey Prideaux says, "before the beginning of the vulgar?a, by which we now compute the years from his incarnation." A book uses the term "vulgar era of the nativity". 6. References used.   The monk dies as he has lived. To write this unusual book, Diat allowed himself ample time to visit eight monasteries in France, with the goal of talking to monks .

    The Abbey of Gethsemani is a school of the Lord's service, a training ground for brotherly love. Following Christ under a rule and an abbot, we Trappist monks lead lives of prayer, work, and sacred reading, steeped in the heart and mystery of the Church. The Abbey is a monastery in the Order of the Cistercians of the Strict Observance (OCSO), part of the body of the Roman Catholic Church. Before the invention of mechanical printing, books were handmade objects, treasured as works of art and as symbols of enduring knowledge. Indeed, in the Middle Ages, the book becomes an attribute of God. Every stage in the creation of a medieval book required intensive labor, sometimes involving the collaboration of entire workshops.

Monks support their calling in a lot of different ways, so it isn't like the printing press put them out of business. In fact, even today at the Benedictine Abbey of Christ in the Desert some monks still continue as scribes, though in a new technological medium.
