Moved by Compassion: Exploring the Core of Orthodox Christian Spiritual Life - Book
Paperback 308 pages
Though compassion lies at the heart of the Gospel, it has been little studied in its own right. This book, written by an accomplished scholar yet accessible to the lay reader, fills that void by drawing on the broad and ancient tradition of the Orthodox Church.
John D. Jones is a priest at Holy Theophany Orthodox Church in Walworth, Wisconsin, as well as a professor emeritus of philosophy at Marquette University. At present, his principal area of research is compassion and the spiritual life within the Orthodox Christian tradition.
