We are surrounded today by spiritualities of all kinds. Native American, Buddhist, Sufi, form the Kabbalah combinations of these and many other sources. How does one discern the truth in them? Many of these paths are turned inward, are egoistic, Gnostic and self-serving. Others are contradictory in their demands, confusing to seekers, dishonestly promising ecstatic experience with little effort. Evdokimov draws from the great currents of Christian spiritual life in the West and in particular the Eastern tradition, revealing how modern mankind may recover the voices of silence, prayer and contemplation. Ages of the Spiritual Life presents different view of the spiritual life.
