Description:
St. Theophan the Recluse, possessing a rare degree of patristic scholarship, combined with a thorough understanding of the soul of his native Russia and of contemporary people in general, was enabled to carve out a genuine understanding of spirituality for modern man. He made this understanding accessible to the average person, for he knew that each "average person" is the possessor of an immortal soul, and each soul is to be attuned here upon earth to live eternally with God in Paradise.

The Spiritual Life and How to be Attuned to it  was the result of a correspondence between a young lady of the upper middle class and St. Theophan the Recluse. In the compilation of his letters of spiritual direction to her, it can be seen that St. Theophan strove to make sure that this young soul would not only be familiar with the principles of spiritual life, but first of all be able to keenly hear the right "tone" of spiritual life.

This tuning of the soul is necessary so that the soul will be in harmony with the voice of God's Providence echoing in the instrument of the heart. In that light, The Spiritual Life and How to be Attuned to it could rightly be called a primer to be used before embarking into the realm of spiritual life.

This new edition of The Spiritual Life has been prepared as a companion volume to the recently published, revised version of The Path to Salvation.

It is enhanced with a larger format (6 x 9), a full color icon of the saint, and colorful pages throughout the book, with illustrations. There is also a matching bookmark. The soft cover includes inner flaps and the inner pages of the book are securely stitched and glued.
