Hesychia and Theology: The Context for Man's Healing in the Orthodox Church
is back-ordered. We will ship it separately in 10 to 15 days.
Hesychia means inner stillness, the peace of the heart. In the Orthodox Church, hesychia is a complete science for healing the thoughts, the heart and the senses.
Theology means speaking about God based on knowledge and experience of Him. Hesychia is the way in which we acquire this spiritual knowledge of God.
We live in an age of constant activity, gratification of the senses, uncontrolled imagination and speculations that wear people out. They are searching for inner stillness - hesychia - from the world of the senses and imagination, but also for theology - knowledge of God - to give their lives meaning.
