THE WAY OF A PILGRIM: THE JESUS PRAYER JOURNEY ANNOTATED & EXPLAINED TRANSLATION & ANNOTATION BY GLEB POKROVSKY
The classic of Russian spirituality—now with
facing-page commentary that illuminates and explains the text.
The Way of a Pilgrim is the timeless account of an anonymous wanderer who set out on a journey across nineteenth-century Russia with nothing but a backpack, some bread, and a Bible, with a burning desire to learn the true meaning of the words of St. Paul: Pray without ceasing. In this completely accessible new abridgment, all the terms and references are explained for you—with intriguing insights into aspects of the text that are often not available to the general reader.
