Product Description

Product Description

Saint Seraphim of Sarov (Russian: Серафим Саровский) (19 July 1759 - 2 January (N.S. 14 January), 1833), born Prokhor Moshnin (Прохор Мошнин), is one of the most renowned Russian monks and mystics in the Orthodox Church. He is generally considered the greatest of the 19th century startsy (elders) and, arguably, the first. He is remembered for extending the monastic teachings of contemplation, theoria and self-denial to the layperson, and taught that the purpose of the Christian life was to acquire the Holy Spirit.

HASH(0xaa6efb58) out of 5 stars Excellent read and filled me with joy! Nov. 28 2011
By Sally - Published on Amazon.com

I loved reading this book. It gave me a sense of awe an great joy. Very informative in the fruits of the spirit. Such as "All that is not done for Christ's sake even though it be good, brings neither reward in the future life nor the grace of God in this life. "He who does not gather with Me scatters" Luke 11:23 It is still considered good. For he who fears God is acceptable to Him. This book is filled with great teachings of the spirit, biblically sound.
St Seraphim's revelations is truly extraordinary an I will read this book over and over. If you wonder what is your true role as a christian, St Seraphim answers the questions with inspiration and sound advice. A good read!

HASH(0xaa3df9f0) out of 5 stars For those seeking the interior way - mystical experience Oct. 4 2010
By Bruce Olsen - Published on Amazon.com

Many of the spiritual books I have read reference this St Seraphime. Highly recommend this as well as the Spritual Path by St Theophan ther Recluse. This is a short narrative with deep meaning which you may spend a lifetime meditating upon and never fully appreciating what is being said - much like the Bible. I started as a Lutheran and now belong to the Coptic Orthodox church.

HASH(0xaa5c1d5c) out of 5 stars Let it be so with me Aug. 19 2012
By Silouan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is simple, profound and moving. A short work worth referring to again and again.

If you are not familiar with St. Seraphim of Sarov, I would suggest a quick reading about his life and ascetic struggles before reading this book. These can easily be found by a quick internet search. This will allow you to have a deeper understanding of the great mysteries described in this work.

My favorite part of the book is that St. Seraphim keeps referring to his spiritual son as "my godliness". Showing his great awareness that all people are icons of our saviour.

The formatting was fine and there were no glitches.

HASH(0xaa323660) out of 5 stars On Aquisition of the Holy Spirit - a great perspective Feb. 21 2012
By Poor Old Norm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A fascinating dialogue that goes on as you are a fly on the wall in the humble cottage of a great spiritual man.
It is at times remanicient of St. Stephen's incomparealbe sermon in Acts or St. Francis speaking truth to power in Rome.
If you are looking for food for thought- this book contains an all you can eat buffet.
