5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful introduction to the Jesus Prayer 22 April 2009
By Yen
This is a new edition of Bishop's Simon's book, unfortunately lacking the beautiful illustrations of the first edition but with revised text.
For anyone seeking a short introduction to the Orthodox practice of the Jesus Prayer, this is an excellent place to begin. Bishop Simon has been practicing and teaching on the Jesus Prayer for many years and is a very well-respected authority on this way of prayer. The book is short and very readable but includes everything a beginner on this path needs to know. Very highly recommended.
