An excellent book series on Christian Prayer, coming from a non Orthodox background there are some amazing instructions on how to pray almost a road map with instructions and advice on how to get to know God For a lay person the key is to find the balance between advice for monks and persons living in an non monastic environment There are many guide books on Eastern non Christian Prayer meditation practice ie Zen etc that are available, however for the Christian seeking God through Jesus Christ this is the series that I have been waiting for for almost 15 years.Thank you A very deep look at orthodox monastic Christian life. This is quite heavy reading, and the various writings clearly originally addressed to those in monasteries or living as hermits Today s reader needs to discern how to draw out the key principles and apply them to a hands on active societal lifestyle Some useful advice and guidance is there to be found if you do not speed read it. I bought this book for a friend who recently converted to Orthodoxy and for my husband As my priest explained, it is a heavy book for a beginner, and therefore it is better to be studied once you have a better insight Nevertheless, I feel one can take a seed for soul from it and grow with it.
