  1. On the Mystical Life, Vol. 1

    On the Mystical Life, Vol. 1

    $25.95

    St Symeon the New Theologian was abbot of the monastery of St Mamas in Constantinople at the turn of the eleventh century. He was also perhaps the most remarkable and certainly the most forceful advocate of the mystical experience of God in the history of the Byzantine Church. Though they were on occasion suppressed by ecclesiastical authorities wary of his fierce enthusiasm, as well as his claims to charismatic authority, St Symeon's writings survived in the Orthodox Church and continued to play a vital role in the several renewals of spiritual life and prayer which has sustained the Church in its often difficult history over the past millennium.

  2. Courage to Pray

    Courage to Pray

    $19.95

    "Prayer is the search for God, encounter with God, and is going beyond this encounter in communion. Thus it is an activity, a state and also a situation; a situation both with respect to God and to the created world... Prayer is born of the discovery that the world has depths — that we are not only surrounded by visible things but that we are also immersed in and penetrated by invisible things. And this invisible world is both the presence of God, the supreme, sublime reality, and our own deepest truth."
    So states the noted Metropolitan Anthony Bloom, who writes about prayer in a way that shows how profoundly acquainted he is with the true conflicts and aspirations that are at the root of man's spiritual being.
    For Georges LeFebvre, a Benedictine monk, prayer is being open to God's mystery, but it is also our awareness that we are children of God: "Our self-awareness is then bound to be a prayer... Prayer is being. It is not something added on, it is being aware of what we are. It is and remains our deepest truth even when we walk in darkness."
    The discovery of prayer, of man's relationship with God and the world, of faith and love, is what gives human beings hope and courage to pray. This little book points to that discovery as a guide for those who wish to end their isolation and enter into communion with the Infinite. Learn More
  3. Saint Sergius and Russian Spirituality

    Saint Sergius and Russian Spirituality

    $28.95

    Among the great spiritual masters, there is one whose influence on the destiny of his country was exceptional. Indeed, one cannot compare him to Moses or to Muhammad, who gave to their nations a new Law. Saint Sergius only applied the Gospel commandments to life; but in doing so he not only served as an example for numerous generations of Christians, but also re-educated his nation. His work is inextricably bound up with the history of Russia from the fourteenth century until our own time. Learn More

  5. From Glory to Glory. Texts from Gregory of Nyssa's Mystical Writ

    From Glory to Glory. Texts from Gregory of Nyssa's Mystical Writ

    $34.95

    Out of stock

    This collection of the spiritual writings of St Gregory of Nyssa, selected and introduced by Jean Danielou, has long been recognized as an authoritative introduction to the "father of mysticism," who exploded classical antiquity's static understanding of perfection by showing the Christian life as one of never-ending growth, a true dynamic movement "from glory to glory."
    Modern thought has come more and more to appreciate the depth and insight of Gregory of Nyssa: he epitomizes, in a sense, all that is best in post-Nicean patristic thought... In Gregory's teaching of the sacred history — of the story of God's dealings with men — history and symbol fuse in a way that reveals all the uniqueness of the Christian message.
    This would be a worthwhile book for any library which has a selection of important theological thought. Learn More
