This work is a revised and expanded version of a book that has appeared in several languages. It focuses on themes central to Eastern Christian worship and spiritual life. The first three chapters provide insights on death, bereavement and resurrection in Christ; and repentance. Chapters four and five invite the reader into the world of desert ascetics and hesychast monks. Combining schoarly rigor with practical counsels on prayer, Bishop Ware makes the wealth of this traditonal accessible to today's Christians. The next three chapters concern personal vocation, martyrdom, spiritual fatherhood and the strange path of the fool for Christ's sake. There follows brief essays on the theology of time and the spiritual purposes of higher education. The final chapters is a challenging discussion of Origen and SS Gregory of Nyssa, Isaac the Syrian and Silouan the Athonite, and in coversation with them asks, "dare we hope for the salvation of all."
