BEGINNING TO PRAY
A Russian diplomat`s son, a doctor and member of the French resistance, an Orthodox monk and later archbishop of the Rusian Orthodox Church in England. Metropolitan Anthony Bloom also happens to be a modern guide to the spiritual life.
He gently warns the reader of this book, "The realm of God is dangerous. You must enter into it and not just seek information about it...the day when God is absent, when He is silent—that is the beginning of prayer."
