Customer Review

on February 28, 2012
"For at least 1,700 years this seemingly simple prayer has been the cornerstone of the spiritual life of countless monks and nuns of the Eastern Church. Yet outside the walls of their monasteries and convents, very few Christians - even those within the Eastern tradition - have ever heard of this prayer or experienced its power to touch the soul and transform one's life" (p.2).

Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer is a journey of exploration that explores the richness of this powerful twelve word prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner. This book and the documentary (available as a DVD) bearing the same title are the result of a pilgrimage undertaken by the author and the renowned historian and Orthodox priest the Very Rev. Dr. John McGuckin. These two men engage in the most comprehensive quest of its kind ever undertaken as they document the people and practice of the Jesus Prayer, including securing interviews and taking pictures or shooting video of sites where such is typically prohibited, and providing historical background.
