Volume one in the series:
The Works of Saint Nikodemos the Hagiorite

This classic text on repentance and confession is appearing for the first time in English.

The call to repentance and confession of sins has been at the heart of the Christian Gospel since the preaching of Saint John the Forerunner and Christ Himself (Mat. 3:2, 4:17). It is the foundation of apostolic preaching (Mark 6:12) and the hallmark of Orthodox Christianity. And yet, in our day, when sin is regularly glorified as glamorous and repentance ridiculed as a sign of weakness, the Mystery of Confession is often misunderstood and neglected.

When, however, one encounters the illumined instructions found in Saint Nikodemos the Hagiorite’s Manual of Confession, he feels himself both freed from the delusions of this age and his own blindness to sin. Saint Nikodemos, an inheritor of the Apostolic Tradition and exponent of the Patristic mind, a Church Father who straddled the divide between antiquity and modernity, and an ascetic theologian who possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of Holy Scripture and the writings of the Holy Fathers, is an exceptionally qualified guide for all who would repent and enter into the Kingdom of Heaven (Mat. 3:2).

In addition to St. Nikodemos’ edifying instruction to the Spiritual Father, the Manual of Confession also offers a meticulous interpretation of the Canons of St. John the Faster, an enlightening counsel for the penitent on how to confess, and a soul-profiting homily on repentance, making it essential reading for all who desire to be cured of the passions and find consolation from their afflictions.

Richly Illustrated.
