HESYCHIA AND THEOLOGY: THE CONTEXT FOR MAN`S HEALING IN THE ORTHODOX CHURCH BY METROPOLITAN HIEROTHEOS VLACHOS OF NAFPAKTOS
The author writes:
People today are in need of Orthodox hesychia, as defined by the holy Fathers, and Orthodox theology. We live in an age of constant activity, gratification of the senses, uncontrolled imagination and speculations that wear people out. They are searching for inner stillness—hesychia—from the world of the senses and imagination, but also for theology—knowledge of God—to give their lives meaning.”
— Metropolitan Hierotheos Vlachos
A very comprehensive, yet simply written, volume on the way the Church can help people to heal the heart, senses and thoughts from the distractions of modern life and thus acquire a knowledge of God in order to give their lives meaning.
