Illness and the Believer in English by Hieromonk Gregorios, elder of the Cell of Saint John the Theologian, Koutloumousiou Monastery, Mount Athos.
This booklet examines the role of illness in the life of the believing Orthodox Christian, specifically:
1)the cause of illness
2) the purpose and benefits of illness
3) how to confront illness in a spiritual manner
4) healing and the practice of medicine
5) divine consolation
As in Father Gregorios' other books, he approaches his study of illness through the writings of Holy Scripture and the Fathers and Elders of the Church.
