about this book

In an engaging combination of dialogues, reflections, conversations, history, and travel information, Kyriacos C. Markides continues the exploration of a spiritual tradition and practice he began in Riding with the Lion. Like the writing of the great mystics, the book brilliantly evokes the confluence of an inner and outer journey. The depth and richness of its spiritual message echo the thoughts and writings of Saint Francis of Assisi and other great saints of the Western Church as well. The result is a remarkable work - a moving, profoundly human examination of the role and the power of spirituality in the modern world.

"I was most interested in the text, and I have learnt many things from it. It forms an excellent overview of traditional Orthodox ascetic and spiritual teachings...." -Bishop Kallistos Ware
