Drawn from the Orthodox Church's living spiritual and theological tradition, the author's themes are guideposts in the faith and life that lead to Jesus Christ. And where Christ is, there is paradise. Orthodox Christians and all who seek Christ's truth will discover compelling and timely illumination on scores of topics, such as: the experience of faith; stillness of heart and the inner life of prayer; the Church as the single, great mystery of the true communion of persons; man as the "image of God" by sanctification; the immortality of our mortal souls; the Keys of the Kingdom — a gift to the Church, not to a throne; the nature of evil; repentance and remission as the healing of our sins; our Sabbath in the grave and our bodily resurrection in the "new heaven and the new earth."
