St. John Climacus, sixth century Abbot of Sinai, compared the spiritual life to a ladder of thirty steps, and explained in detail the challenges presented by each of these steps. This spiritual classic has brought inspiration and edification to every generation since that time, and has been treasured by both monastics and laymen. This edition includes a full color frontispiece of an icon of the Spiritual Ladder, from Mount Sinai.
