JOHN CLIMACUS: FROM THE EGYPTIAN DESERT TO THE SINAITE MOUNTAIN
The Ladder of Divine Ascent, written by John Climacus in the seventh century has always been and remains to this day a seminal guide to the spiritual life for many Christians both East and West. Whilst published with an academic audience in view this is a very readable and accessible work which reflects Fr John Chryssavgis`s deep engagement with St. John and his writing. The saint and his work are set in their historical context followed by chapters on central themes such as unceasing prayer, the gift of tears, inner stillness and longing for God.
