We are surrounded today by many spiritualities - Native American, Buddhist, Sufi, from the Kabbalah, to name a few. But how does one discern the truth in them? Paul Evdokimov's spirituality is open to God, the world and to the neighbour. It is the spirituality of the Church and is rooted in the Bible and liturgy, but entwined with everyday life, a spirituality that is truly "for the life of the world".

Descripción St Vladimirs Seminary Press March 1998, 1998. Paper Back. Condición: New. Anyone who takes at all seriously historic Christian spirituality -- which is at its core monastic spirituality -- must sooner or later confront the question: ''How can the ascetical life be lived in the world?'' How can the rigor of The Ladder of Divine Ascent be taken up by those in secular society, perhaps in the community of marriage? A priest friend recently proposed a winsome answer, essentially saying that Climacus' instruction was like a melody that had to be transposed into a new key, for a different instrument than that for which it had originally been written. Ages of the Spiritual Life is exactly that transposition, an approach to the classic themes of ascetic spirituality -- poverty, chastity, obedience, discernment, silence, vigilance, humility -- that renders them in terms accessible to any Christian, without subtracting anything from their demands or their promise. Evdokimov's pregnant, aphoristic prose should be read slowly and meditatively, with due attention to the amazing way in which scripture is used to interpret scripture, or patristic citation, or even modern philosophical query, and these mutually to enlighten the scripture in turn. Fully faithful to Orthodox teaching yet respectfully cognizant of the unique insights and dangerous tendencies of the modern temper, Evdokimov offers a living, poetic insight into the verities and mysteries of the human condition in the light of Christ.
