Way of the Asceticsis a rich, compact introduction for modern readers to the Eastern Christian spiritual tradition that has been an inspiration to millions for centuries. These compassionate and insightful reflections on self-control and inner peace are meant to lead the readers to fuller union with God. The author makes a generous selection of succinct yet profound extracts from the spiritual Fathers and provides an illuminating commentary and practical applications for daily devotion. He tempers austerity with common sense, warmth, and even humor, as he urges us on our journey toward God.
Written for laypersons living fully in the world as much as for clergy, Way of the Asceticsis an excellent resource for daily meditation, authentic spiritual guidance, and a revitalized religious life.
The Author: Tito Colliander was born in St Petersburg, Russia, but lived most of his life in Helsinki, Finland, where he was an Orthodox layman and the author of several books in both the religious and secular fields.
