Themes in Orthodox Patristic Psychology: Humility, Obedience, Repentance, and Love

Archbishop Chrysostomos of Etna
With Contributions From Mother Theadelphi, Bishop Ambrose, Hieromonk Ambrose, Archpriest Vladimir Derugin, and Protopresbyter James Thornton
And Introductory Notes By Hieromonk Patapios, Abbess Alexandra, and Father Gregory Telepneff

“The present omnibus edition of Themes in Orthodox Patristic Psychology, containing expanded and emended texts of the four original titles in the series (Humility, Obedience, Repentance, and Love), represents the rich fruit of Archbishop Chrysostomos’ many years of careful study and reflection, drawn both from his academic research and personal, spiritual, and pastoral experience, on the most central concept, as put forth by Saints Paul and Nicodemos, in the theory and practice of Orthodox Christian theology; namely, the transformation and enlightenment of our minds by the four virtues covered in each volume. This new edition of Archbishop Chrysostomos’ series, the constituent books of which have been highly praised over the last quarter of a century by such superb scholars as Professor Constantine Cavarnos and Professor John E. Rexine (1929–1993) and lauded by the well-known Roman Catholic theologian Father Henri Nouwen (1932–1996), and which have helped innumerable Christian believers, both Orthodox and non-Orthodox, come to a more profound understanding of Eastern Christian life and thought, is of especial relevance in the disturbing welter of confusion which is so characteristic of Orthodoxy in the modern world.”
