". . . A unique book that is much more than a biography. This particular work is significant in that it is structured as a systematic study of his spiritual teaching. Presented as a patristic analysis in comparison with similar teachings of the Church Fathers, this book also serves as an ideal introduction to Orthodox spiritual life. The very practical and applicable approach of the author will appeal to all readers regardless of their level of spiritual progress. Whether one is already familiar with the teachings of the ascetic Fathers, or whether one is a beginner with a new thirst for knowledge and prayer, the interests of each and every reader will be inspired by this book . . ." -- Archbishop Herman of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania, Orthodox Church in America.
