Product Description


"Chris has provided a guide book to help the general reader through this rich resource...This rich encyclopedic work will be valued by many for a long time"
--Way of Life April - June 2011

"Cook finds the key to unlocking the meaning of the Philokalia AND to seeing the convergence of Christian spirituality and contemporary psychology in Evagrios' metaphor of shepherding thoughts.", May 16, 2011

"This imaginative study succeeds in drawing out the riches of the Philokalia...a taster for a rich spiritual resource as well as a reminder of the essential yoking together of psychological and spiritual well-being."
--John Twisleton, New Direction, June 2011

"This is a profound work of scholarship and spiritual understanding that can be strongly recommended to believers of any religion or none."
--Professor Andrew Sims, Royal College of Psychiatrists- Spirituality and Psychiatry Special Interest Group Newsletter, No. 31, June 2011

'Even though life in its fullness will always transcend our understanding of it, doing justice to the complexity of human life requires that psychology be more than merely an empirical or clinical discipline. This is why 'The Philokalia and the Inner Life: On Passion and Prayer' by Christopher C.H. Cook (2011) is important for both contemporary psychology and Christian pastoral care.'
--Fr Gregory, Koinonia, --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
