St. Theophan the Recluse possessed a rare degree of patristic scholarship, combined with a thorough understanding of the soul of contemporary people. Accordingly, he had the insight to formulate a genuine understanding of spiritual life for modern man. In this book—rightly called a primer for spiritual life—St. Theophan makes this understanding accessible to the average person, for he knew that each “average person” is the possessor of an immortal soul, and each soul must be attuned here on earth to live eternally with God in Paradise. With fatherly care, he leads us gently yet firmly along the narrow way to which we are called, explaining life and all that it can bring in a light that stresses hope, forgiveness and mercy.
This new edition of The Spiritual Life has been prepared as a companion volume to the recently published, revised version of The Path to Salvation.
It is enhanced with a larger format (6 x 9), a full color icon of the saint, and colorful pages throughout the book, with illustrations. There is also a matching bookmark. The soft cover includes inner flaps and the inner pages of the book are securely stitched and glued.
