Format: Paperback
"Who has ever hoped in God and was put to shame? And who has despaired and was ever saved? The devil fears a person who hopes, because he knows from experience what a greatly compassionate God we have. If a child hopes in his own father will never go wrong, how much more will he who hopes in the Father of fathers, Whose love cannot be compared with any other love and is as far from any other love as the heaven is from the abyss! If someone sins fatally ten thousand times but exerts himself in repentance with all his strength, as long as he hopes, he will never be put to shame. For whom did Christ suffer? Was it not for our souls that are wounded by the dragon?"

Elder Ephraim, Counsels from the Holy Mountain. Pg 266

Elder Ephraim, former abbot of Philotheou Monastery was born to a poor family in Volos, Greece in 1927, receiving the name John at baptism. His yearning for the monastic life developed at the age of 14, and by the age of 20 God helped him to achieve his dream of becoming a monk under the discipleship of Elder Joseph the Hesychast. After Elder Joseph's repose, he became head of a group of around eight monks which later grew to forty, and following on from which he was asked to become abbot of Philotheou. He became well known throughout Greece, even before Elder Joseph's repose and many people from throughout the country would come to him seeking spiritual help and guidance. He moved to the United States in 1990 bringing with him, the Athonite witness from Greece in his establishment of seventeen monasteries in that country in the space of ten years.

This book centres around Elder Ephraim's counsels to his spiritual children. In it, he discusses a variety of different topics which are relevant to both monks and laypeople.
