Description

The present book consists of Elder Vasileios' talks, discussions and dialogues in various venues mostly in the United States during his visit in 2011, along with excerpts from his writings selected to complement the themes of his talks. åÊThe themes dealt with by Fr. Vasileios so eloquently in this book are extraordinarily wide-ranging; he handles complex and difficult issues in theology, spirituality, liturgics, parish life and monasticism with amazing clarity and insight. åÊHe quotes with equal facility from figures as diverse as Heraclitus, Dostoevsky, St. Isacc the Syrian, St. Maximus the Confessor, Stefan Zweig, Andrei Tarkovsky, Vladimir Lossy, Georges Florovsky and St. Nicholas Cabasilas. åÊAbove all, there is an exhilarating sense of freedom and innocence in his thought. åÊIt is the freedom and innocence of profound faith and spiritual knowledge and childlike simplicity. åÊHis wisdom is expressed via the "hyperlogic" of a hesychastic spirit, which makes for surprising connections and illuminating insights. åÊThe appearance of this new book by Archimandrite Vasileios is truly a cause for celebration.åÊ
