One of this century's greatest students of Orthodox sanctity, Professor Kontzevitch combined careful honest scholarship with a first-hand knowledge of saints with whom he had been in contact while in Russia including the holy Elders of Optina Monastery. His magnum opus, this book is a priceless sourcebook of all that he felt important to say about spiritual prayer, communion with God, asceticism, and eldership

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

That which is set in motion by the Holy Spirit becomes an eternal movement, living and holy; when the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in a man, he who was previously only earth and dust receives the dignity of a prophet, an apostle and an angel of God. --St. Gregory Palamas, 14th Century
