The beautiful art of stillness and simplicity,
This review is from: The Way of a Pilgrim and The Pilgrim Continues His Way (Paperback)
This book was given to me as a gift many years ago, and has remained a favourite ever since. In the simplest and most humble of styles, the anonymous pilgrem recounts the story of his struggles with prayer: how is he to 'pray continually' in a world of such speed and noise? His journeys and adventures as he learns the life of inner prayer are stunningly beautiful in their presentation, and inspiring to all who read this work. And while "The Way of a Pilgrim" is not an 'instruction manual' on prayer, it cannot help but inspire the prayer-life of its readers. The author's compilation of related materials on the Orthodox "Jesus Prayer," found at the end of the book, are a welcomed addition to a marvelous text.
