This present volume is devoted to a great monastic figure of our time, Blessed Elder Gabriel Dionysiatis (1886-1983), whom Dr Cavarnos characterises as a "remarkable confessor and spiritual guide, a profound analyst of twentieth century society and an inspiring writer on many vital topics." He gives a masterly account of this holy Father's life, character, and thought; discusses the ten books which he wrote and his numerous articles; and presents an extensive anthology of edifying texts from them.
Blessed Elder Gabriel was for forty years, Abbot of the Holy Monastery of Dionysiou at Mount Athos. He has been called "the abbot of abbots of the twentieth century" and "a great man of Greece and of the Orthodox Faith." -- Backcover
