There isn’t enough space to describe this book. It tracks the life of a man who discovers a prayer rope as a discipline to pray along the way of his troubled life. It introduces the Philokalia, ancient writings by spiritual fathers, as one path of learning. Success, straying, and failure open along the path as this book challenges our prayer lives and lifestyles. Edgy for the standard Christian. Essential stretch for those who want to get outside of the box.
