For the first time in English, we present Fra. Luis de Granada’s “Libro de la Escala Espiritual”, (1562) of J. Climacus’ “Ladder of Divine Ascent.” This work is ... More > from his initial effort of 1551. This particular work has endured more than any other ascetic wring. It remains the most influential early work regarding ascetic practices and deep spiritual growth for those who are and are not under a vowed vocation. The chain of this thought is preserved in the writings of Symeon the New Theologian, a 10th century “Climacus type figure”, who likewise has a dual thread in his spirituality. In the early 20th century, L. Moore makes a comment , in his translation of “Ladder of Divine Ascent”. A few centuries later, Nicholas of Cusa, makes a compelling remark in one of his later works, “On Seeing God.” By the early 1500’s Nil Sorsky will continue the link to Climacus and other hesychast practitioners. Lastly, the late V. Loskky has also cited this issue.< Less

[Hardcover] Near the end of his writing career, Cassian the monk was commissioned by the future Pope Leo the Great to reply to the Christological positions of Nestorius. Nestorius saw in Christ two... More > subjects, that of the Word and that of the man Jesus. Cassian’s foray into ecclesiastical controversy, a cannonade of arguments from the Scriptures and the early Fathers, offers a blusteringly-effective representation of the general Christological views of East and West. Unsurprisingly, for one such as Cassian who was so concerned with the heights of Christian sanctity, it places special emphasis on the distinction between Christ’s divinity and the indwelling of the Word in the saints—for the full divinity of Christ is what indeed makes it possible for Christ to be said to dwell within those saints who tread the heights of union with God. What he lacks in the precision of an Athanasius or a Maximus the Confessor, Cassian more than makes up for in the passion of his argumentation.< Less

Author Douglas P Michaud, Ph.D.C., argues convincingly that for many today Christian Faith is becoming a surface experience, a hollow and synthetic shell, because we lack the vital encounter with... More > God’s Love that is possible only through a personal commitment and relationship with Jesus Christ. Without this personal and intimate relationship, without a genuine sense of fusion with Christ’s transforming Presence, the presentation of Christianity is stripped of its essential meaning and robbed of its pivotal force. The heart and soul of humanity are left empty without the central experience promised by the Gospel, the real goal of the Gospel: that through the Word of God we can be passionately imbued with the Spirit and Power and Love of the Risen Christ. This accomplished, “It is no longer I who live, but Jesus Christ Who lives in me…”< Less
