The Art of Prayer: An Orthodox Anthology

coverAn Orthodox Anthology
Compiled by Igumen Chariton of Valamo

ISBN 0-5711-9165-7

Description: This is a collection of texts on prayer, drawn from Greek and Russian sources. The spiritual teaching of the Orthodox Church appears here in its classic and traditional form, but expressed in unusually direct and vivid language.

The Art of Prayer is concerned in particular with the most frequently used and best loved of all Orthodox prayers - the Jesus Prayer. It deals also with the general question 'What is prayer?', with the different degrees of prayer from ordinary oral prayer to unceasing prayer of the heart, with the dangers of illusion and discouragement, and the need for seclusion and inner peace. Father Chariton, 'Igumen' or Abbot of the Russian monastery of Valamo, took his texts chiefly from the letters of bishop Theophan the Recluse, one of the greatest spiritual guides in nineteenth-century Russia. But he used many other writers, Greek as well as Russian, and concluded with the teaching given to monks of his own community of Valamo.

Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer

coverBy C. S. Lewis
ISBN 0-1565-0880-X

Description: In the form of warm, relaxed letters to a close friend, C. S. Lewis meditates on many puzzling questions concerning the intimate dialogue between man and God.

Beginning with a discussion of "corporate prayer" and the liturgical service, he goes on the consider practical and metaphysical aspects of private prayer, such as when to pray and where; the content of prayer (If God is omniscient, why do we give Him information?); ready-made prayer; petitionary prayer (Does God grant requests?);

prayer as worship; penitential prayer; perfect prayer (Is the ideal prayer really a soliloquy?); the Lord's Prayer; reality and prayer (Is it the real self who prays?); and prayer for the dead. The concluding letter contains provocative thoughts about "liberal Christians," the soul, and resurrection.
