I stumbled upon St. Isaac after researching Dostoevsky’s life and works, finding out that St. This is the best book representing the writings of St.


Isaac when it comes to comprehensiveness. Further, this book is beautiful visually, poetically, psychologically, philosophically, and spiritually. I have over books, and have to say that this is one of the top five most beautiful books I have owned along with The Red Book, Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales leather bound sint, The Glorious Constellations: Welcome to psychological and spiritual insight.

I read a mere page a day, and srian then feel inadequate to move forward as there are still gems from previous pages that I have not fully appreciated.

Unfortunately I have to leave this review where it stands as I am out of time. I will edit and elaborate on this more later. I recently purchased the new and updated version of the Ascetical Homilies of St. Issac the Syrian, and I have just finished the first four homilies. First, the English translation is superb and is nothing less that one would except from the Monks of Holy Transfiguration Monastery.

Second, the Homilies themselves are excellent, at least the first four that I have read, and provide a wonderful look into the Orthodox Christian understanding of human “Passions” and how those human “Passions” must be controlled for the spiritual well-being of one’s soul and growth in oneness i.

Theosis with Almighty God. This is a great treaties on how one can live the Ascetic Life even if one is not a monastic.

I highly recommend St. Issac’s Homilies to all who are struggling to grow in their daily Christian walk and way of life. Pick up a copy as soon as possible and read one homily a night before bed, even as part of your nightly prayer and devotion time. Its well worth it. It is difficult to express the power of this book written for monks and hermits who live alone in a life of silence and prayer.

Why would a modern person living in the world read such a book? Because monks have always been a beacon of life for the laity. Prayer and meditation are not only for monks but will permeate the life of every person who seeks them out with a fragrance indescribable. Other monks write of Isaac the Syrian: Every day one page of Abba Isaac.

Isaac is the mirror. There you will behold yourself. The mirror is so that we may see if we have any shortcoming, any smudge on our face, in order to remove it, to cleanse ourselves IN Abba Isaac you will behold your thoughts, what they are thinking.

Your feet, where they are going. Your eyes, if they have light and see. There you will find many sure and unerring ways in order to be helped. One page of Isaac a day. In the morning or at night. They are the Alpha and Omega of the life of watchfulness andy interior prayer, and alone suffice to guide one from his first steps to perfection. It gave me incredible peace and inner resources.

It inspired me to pray and spend more time on what is real: I was left with Isaac’s book which I would not leave behind for anything.
