Expanding the Limits of the Heart
By Metropolitan Ambrose (Ermakov) of Tver and Kashin
The spiritual life of every Orthodox Christian begins and ends in the heart. Whether we rejoice or suffer, love or hate, it is in our heart that we must find Christ. Metropolitan Ambrose has drawn on his decades of experience in theological education, his love for the Divine Services and his years as a monastic, to offer precious nuggets of wisdom on how to nurture the life of the heart.
Each short chapter addresses one element of the spiritual life, presenting a precious spiritual nugget in easily-accessible language. These reflections are divided into three sections: Meditations on Education, The Journey of Lent, and the Life of a Monk.
Vladyka Ambrose is the former abbot of Sretensky Monastery and has been rector of both the Moscow Theological Academy and the St. Petersburg Theological Academy. This soft-cover, perfect-bound book is richly embellished with dozens of full-color photographs. 192 pages.
