    It is a very advanced book for Eastern Orthodox Monastics.Not for simple laymen, and especially not for non-Orthodox Christians.The Eastern Orthodox Theology is difficult to grasp, even if you are a Baptized Eastern Orthodox.If you are not Eastern Orthodox, do not buy this book, it will only make you proud.But with all the ecumenism and false love floating around, someone is bound to become deluded, and think that they need this book.The book is for monks, Eastern Orthodox monks.Its very great for anybody who wants to learn about what the monks went through back in the golden years of monasticism.But practicing all of these things is a completely different subject.
