St. Silouan pray to God for us.
I could not have imagined that a book about the man Silouan would turn into a spiritual brotherhood with him.
That alone has been an important part of spiritual life over the past 11 years. His teaching though, on loving our enemies, the Grace of God and on pride has been an on going resource for my everyday life.
I am thankful for the illumination that comes from this man and this book.

I like this book because it answered some questions that were left in me after my father had died. As a young man he had had an education at a monastery in the Netherlands in order to become a priest. I once asked him about his way of meditation, but he could not explain it any more. This book gave me the answers.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to all those who feel ready to explore themselves in meditation and to discover the Christian way of spiritual development towards the sublime experience of the Love of the Lord, our Father.
