Tomás Spidlík S.J., Anthony P. Gythiel, Translator

This second volume on Eastern Christian spirituality amplifies in depth the final two chapters of the earlier The Spirituality of the Christian East: A Systematic Handbook. Like St. John Cassian in writing his Conferences, Cardinal Spidlík does not advocate any particular pattern of prayer, but sets out faithfully to collect and share the teachings of generations of eastern monks and spiritual writers.

This book is a Cistercian publication.

"If you want to learn about the richness and depths of Eastern Christian prayer and spirituality, theology, development and practice, then there is little doubt that his is one of the most comprehensive and authoritative books available in the English language."
-Shawn Trive, The New Liturgical Movement
