The Jesus Prayer

   
A Monk of the Eastern Church
Archimandrite Lev Gillet
Revised edition with a foreword by Kallistos Ware, Bishop of Diokleia

“‘To pronounce the name of Jesus in a holy way is an all-sufficient and surpassing aim for any human life.... We are to call to mind Jesus Christ until the name of the Lord penetrates our hearts, descends to its very depths. ...The name of Jesus, once it has become the center of our life, brings everything together.’ So writes the ‘Monk of the Eastern Church’ in the course of the present work. To those who wonder how such claims can be advanced on behalf of the Jesus Prayer, and how it is that this particular way of praying continues to appeal so powerfully to contemporary Christians, Eastern and Western, Orthodox and non-Orthodox, this short book provides an answer.”
