Faber & Faber The Philokalia, Volume 1

The Philokalia is a collection of texts written between the fourth and fifth centuries by spiritual masters of the Orthodox Christian tradition. First published in Greek in 1782, translated into Slavonic and later into Russian, The Philokalia has exercised an influence far greater than that of any book other than the Bible in the recent history of the Orthodox church.

Includes the writings of St. Isaiah the Solitary, Evagrios the Solitary, St. John Cassian, St. Mark the Ascetic, St. Hesychios the Priest, St. Neilos the Ascetic, St. Diadochos of Photiki and St. John of Karpathos.

I have been introduced to these writers through the sermons of Father David. I have skimmed each books in the series and I am impressed by each writer's quest for following Mark 8:34- deny yourself, pick up your cross, and follow me. There is quite a distinction between early Christianity and today's Christianity. I believe this series will help me in my own spiritual walk in Christ. I do know that it is not easy reading and that you will need to read it in a place with no distractions.
