5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book on prayer of the heart Jan. 22 2004
Format:Paperback
This is one of the best books I have ever read on prayer in general and on the prayer of the heart- the Jesus Prayer.
The book is based on the writings of two great russian Saints of the nineteenth century. Anyone who is looking for the inner Kingdom shall purchase this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gems from the Valaam Monastery Sept. 13 2003
Format:Paperback
When this anthology by Igumen Chariton (1872-1947) came out in 1936 the catastrophies of the coming War were already 'in the air'. Archbishop Paul of Finland was a Valaam monk and lived through these difficult times when Finland lost the war and Valaam to the Soviet.
He writes in the Finnish translation of 'The Art of Prayer': "Two years after 1936 when the Art of Prayer was published Igumen Chariton published another book on the same subject with over 500 pages." This book had a subtitle called "Discussions Aroused by the Anthology of the Jesus' Prayer Between and Elder and a Priest Acting in the World". Most of the publication was destroyed during the Winter War. Let us hope that it will be published some time!
Igumen Chariton's book is meant for daily reading. A guide is invaluable, but lack of one is no reason for not starting to practice the Prayer of the Heart; at some stage God will help!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pray Without Ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17) Oct. 25 2002
Format:Paperback
Saint Paul exhorts us to "pray without ceasing" (1 Thess. 5:17). Most people pray, and some pray often, but how can we pray unceasingly? One of the best ways to accomplish this is through the Jesus Prayer. This prayer is very simple: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner." And yet it is very powerful: perhaps the best means of communion with God outside the Eucharist.
First of all, it is firmly rooted in Scripture. It is based on the prayer of the blind man: "Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me," and that of the repentant Publican: "God, be merciful to me, a sinner." In addition, it invokes the Most-Holy Name of Jesus: "There is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12), and "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things on earth, and things under the earth" (Phil. 2:9,10). The apostle also tells, "No man can say, Lord Jesus, except by the Holy Ghost" (1 Cor. 12:3).
Furthermore, this prayer is awesome in its simplicity, consisting of only a dozen words. It is at once an affirmation of faith and repentance. When said in full diligence, humility and sincerity, avoiding vain repetition, the words and message of this beautiful prayer will engrain themselves in our being; as Saint Theophan the Recluse put it so beautifully, the Prayer becomes "a murmuring stream within our souls."
This book is an anthology by Igumen Chariton of Valamo, based on the notes he took out of the works of Sts. Theophan, Ignatii Branchianinov, the Sayings of the Desert Fathers, and of course, the Philokalia.

If you want answers to the questions? WHAT IS PRAYER? WHAT IS ITS ESSENCE? HOW CAN WE LEARN TO PRAY? WHAT DOES THE SPIRIT OF THE CHRISTIAN EXPERIENCE AS HE PRAYS IN HUMILITY OF HEART? pg. 51. Then read this book. I even bought a copy and gave it to a Pentacostal friend of mine, for his birthday. This book is unquestionably destined to become equal to the Philikolia.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Art of Prayer Dec 15 2001
Format:Paperback
Being interested in true prayer and it's purpose to and through
God and in a format for the layman to grasp and understand, this source has been a blessing to me. I have recommended it to other Christians and will place it in our church library. There is an extensive bibliograpy for further study. I highly recommend to Christian and non-Christian. To the Easterm Othodox " a must read"
