A book of reminiscences on the life and sayings of the Elder Paisios (1924-1994), one of the towering figures of Greek Orthodox monasticism in the 20th century. He is considered a candidate for sainthood by many. Orthodox believers and seekers from all about the globe streamed to his little hermitage on the Holy Mountain, i.e., Mount Athos in Greece, the spiritual center of the Orthodox Church. They sought spiritual guidance and prayers from this humble monk who astounded many with his God-given ability to read hearts and prescribe true medicines for the soul. The author, a fellow Athonite monk, has recorded his own memories of Elder Paisios, along with those told him by other acquaintances of the elder. Includes several photos of the elder and the places where he lived. Large format 9 3/8 x 6 5/8 inches. Sold over 100,000 copies in Greece.
