PRAYER IN THE UNSEEN WARFARE
Adapted from the classic spiritual work, The Unseen Warfare.
A contemporary adaptation of a spiritual classic. Fr. Jack has drawn upon several versions of a classic sixteenth-century treatise, Spiritual Combat, originally written to guide monks in their labors to attain union with God. Though Western in origin, the profound spiritual insights of Spiritual Combat were recognized by Eastern writers such as Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain and Saint Theophan the Recluse, who subsequently edited and revised it in accordance with traditional Orthodox beliefs. In one form or another, this work has been revered as a classic on spiritual warfare for over four hundred years.
