Precious Vessels of the Holy Spirit: The Lives & Counsels of Contemporary Elders of Greece

   
Third Edition

Foreword by Dr. Georgios Mantzaridis
Compiled, written, translated from the Greek, edited, and with a preface, introduction, notes, and glossary by Herman A. Middleton

“This book was initially conceived as a simple anthology of the sayings and counsels of contemporary Greek elders who lived and reposed during the twentieth century. Our goal was not to be exhaustive (there are many great elders who are not represented here), but rather representative of the spiritual riches, which, by God’s providence, have been nurtured and preserved even during our age of faithlessness and tragic spiritual decline. It quickly became apparent, however, that for most of the English-speaking world these ‘voices from the desert’ would take on something of a mythological character if they were not accompanied by the lives of the elders, which would put into context and make more real what will seem to many as fantastic accounts and words of counsel that surpass the logical faculties of contemporary man.”
