Guidance Toward Spiritual Life: Answers to the Questions of Disciples

   
Saints Barsanuphius and John
Selected and translated by Fr. Seraphim Rose

No. 4 of Orthodox Theological Texts

“Fr. Seraphim found that many of the questions posed to Saints Barsanuphius and John in Guidance Toward Spiritual Life were not unlike those asked by Christian strugglers of today; and the answers of the Elders cut right through common fantasies and misconceptions. The Elders expose the nature of the vices—feigned humility, cold-hearted calculation, judgment, idleness, lack of inward vigilance, carnal imaginings, vainglory—and show how to overcome them and acquire virtue. From the Elders’ words one can learn of the remarkable subtlety of demonic deception, and become aware of the painstaking carefulness with which a Christian must examine his thoughts, words and deeds to see if they are of God.”
