Orthodox Spirituality, a brief introduction
The book Orthodox Spirituality examines issues concerning the spiritual life without the author embarking on a full and detailed analysis.
It introduces us to the basic themes connected with Orthodox faith and Christian life. “The essence of Orthodox spirituality lies in its therapeutic effects. It cures a person’s infirmities…What is healed first and foremost is a person’s heart, which is the centre of his entire being.”
The key elements of Orthodox spirituality are defined. A spiritual person is someone who has become a dwelling of the Holy Spirit. Asceticism is always linked with the Holy Mysteries. There is no watertight distinction between practical virtue and the vision of God’s glory or between monasticism and married life. Orthodox Spirituality is a book that is concise but comprehensive and effective introduction to the subject.
