In this culmination of his life's work, the popular Orthodox lay theologian and translator of the Philokalia, draws from the depths of tradition the "face" of Christianity as a world religion. Readers will find a fresh synthesis of issues familiar in earlier works: cosmology, the modern scientific paradigm, the role of sacred symbols, the thoughts of Nietzsche, Jung, and issues of death and dying. Foreword by Kallistos Ware.
