By the end, we indeed feel that we have spent a night in heaven. Mt. Athos is described as a regained Eden of beauty and divine silence. The thought that such a place, with such inhabitants, still exists in the world today moves me with awe at the grace of God.
One problem, though: the book is full of typos and formatting problems, which, while generally not obscuring the meaning of the text, can be distracting nonetheless. Sometimes it is unclear who is speaking. The phrase "Jesus Prayer" appears in quotes sometimes, sometimes not (I would say the quotes are unnecessary)- and, as you can imagine, they say "Jesus Prayer" a lot in this book! Punctuation is often missing or misplaced. There are many parts where the poetry of Saint Symeon or other Fathers is quoted, and the line-breaks are garbled. The publishers badly need to get some proofreaders on this book before they issue another edition.
