This book takes us on a journey into the heart of Orthodox spirituality--another reality, another way of seeing things, a world of silence, mystery, and beauty that stretches backward over two thousand years and extends upward in prayer to eternity. In this survey of Orthodox spirituality John Chryssavgis explores familiar themes such as liturgy and sacrament, theology, monasticism, hesychastic prayer, as well as the book of nature,” spiritual direction, and the scandal of the cross.”
