'Both charming and wrenchingly serious all at the same time.'-PHYLLIS TICKLE, Publishers Weekly, USA. By Paul Wallis, the author of the highly acclaimed The New Monastic (OakTara). When a 21st-century Evangelical and an 18th-century Russian Monk get together for an Italian meal, you know the conversation is going to take you to some unexpected places! I was, I have to admit, a little unsure about ringing somebody up who by rights ought to have been dead a good 150 years, but I was right out of inspiration for the 'Renewing Your Spiritual Passion' three-day retreat I was supposed to lead. I was preached-out, dried-up, just nothing. I had no idea that Anton would introduce me to the extraordinary St Seraphim of Sarov, a wild hermit who lived much of his life 200 years ago in the dense Russian forests. But his wisdom would weave its way into my heart, answer my difficult questions, and inspire me to great things. Includes practical spiritual exercises for individuals or groups. The perfect 'retreat in a book.' 'If ever there were a book that is both charming and wrenchingly serious all at the same time, it is this record of a dinner with Anton. Orthodoxy and its ways of praying and being have never had a more cordial, attractive, and sympathetic introduction in the West than that which Paul Wallis provides here. I can almost guarantee that you will savor as well as treasure this one.'-PHYLLIS TICKLE, Publishers Weekly, USA. 'Paul has the profound ability to make subjects such as listening to God, prayer, solitude and faith accessible and understandable. This book could open up new horizons for you in your relationship with God.'-BARRY KISSELL, Evangelist & Author. 'Where Paul Wallis provides the meat, I am happy to provide the gravy.'-METROPOLITAN ANTHONY OF SOUROZH. 'Paul Wallis is able somehow to roll back the years. This sense of timelessness is key to My Dinner with Anton. One of the greatest rewards is to listen as Paul Wallis poses all those difficult questions we may have longed to ask for ourselves. We come away enriched and encouraged to expect great things of God in our own lives.'-MOST REVD & RT HON DAVID HOPE, Former Archbishop of York. 'The text of My Dinner with Anton is simple yet profound, foreign yet relevant. I believe churches of every stream-missional and traditional, emerging and mainstream-will find fresh vision, encouragement, and inspiration in its pages.' -RT REVD STUART ROBINSON, Bishop of Canberra & Goulburn, Australia. 'I have yet to meet anyone with more wisdom, passion, and personal integrity than Paul. His ability to speak into people's lives and to see years into the future is an exceptional gift.'-NICK JENSEN, ACT Director, Australian Christian Lobby. 'In a world of shock jocks and talking past one another, Paul Wallis provides us with an appetizing model of discourse showing how orthodoxy deserves its place at the table of ideas, how it feeds the soul and inspires the spirit, how it is not merely worth considering, but worth embracing, indeed how, once one takes it inside oneself, one discovers something rather amazing-you are what you eat! My advice in regard to Paul Wallis' entrée is the advice God gave Ezekiel-eat this book!'-DR. BEN WITHERINGTON, III, Amos Professor of NT for Doctoral Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky; Doctoral Faculty, St. Mary's College, St. Andrews University, Scotland.
