By Metropolitan Hierotheos Vlachos. A classic on the Jesus Prayer.

A Night in the Desert of the Holy Mountain is a book which brings to light the quintessence of Orthodox spiritual life: the Jesus prayer or prayer of the heart and how it can be practised by both monks / nuns and lay people. The reader enjoys the simple presentation of the teachings of the Church on the Jesus prayer, through the authentic experience of an Athonite hermit. And "when a hermit's mouth opens, it fills you with fragrance."

Translated by Effie Mavromichali. Published by Birth of the Theotokos Monastery. Softbound. 204pp. 2nd Edition.
