Eastern philosophy and religion have always been intriguing to me. I have difficulty finding and interpreting the many and varied concepts and ideas contained within them. Philokalia offered me a concise and encompassing look at many of the eastern traditions and ideas. I got very detailed descriptions of concepts that I could adopt or use in my search for spiritual enlightenment. This book takes some time to digest it is not a quick read. I feel that spending more time with the book allowed me to delve deeper into a variety of concepts and ideas. This is a good read for all who are interested in the area of eastern philosophy and religion.

A hefty tome that is more than the simple reading it appears to be on the outside. This book lends itself well to taking it slowly, reading bits at a time, and following through with due introspection. Absolutely wonderful.

Although centuries old the inspired words of the Philokalia speak to us today, feeding and refreshing our spirits as they have for pilgrims since they were first penned. Amplified and expanded with extensive notes, this little extract will inspire and give encourage. A must-read for everyone serious about become more like Christ.

the texts on display in the book can hardly be seen as more than an introduction into the wealth of the Filokalia. But the comments an explanations on the oposite page makes these texts understandable for a public from 1.500 years later. It will be an eyeopener for everyone interested in the topic.

It is wonderful that one of the most important texts in Eastern Orthodoxy is now freely available in English. The Philokalia stands alone as one of the most important collection of the writings of the early fathers of the Church. It is splendid it is available with Kindle
