This book gives a clear and concise presentation of the Hesychastic tradition of the Orthodox Church and a short biography of St Gregory Palamas who was a central figure in its formation in the 14th century Greece It's a good introduction but based on the title I was hoping to read about St Gregory himself and maybe get a detailed analysis of his personal contribution to the tradition and less about his predecessors and successors The biographical content of the book is a little bit on the thin side

Meyendorff does a fantastic job of tracing Eastern Christian spirituality as well as the theology which forms the basis of this spirituality through the Fathers to St Gregory Palamas who articulated it with unmatched clarity and precision He then traces hesychasm from Palamas to the twentieth century highlighting some of the particular distinctives various Eastern Orthodox traditions have developed focusing uite a bit on some of the Orthodox Church's important Saints of the last several hundred years I withhold a fifth star only because the book was lacking bibliographically and especially editorially which is a shame for such an excellent book by an otherwise reputable publisher

Richly documented and lavishly illustrated study of Orthodox spirituality traces the development of 'Orthodox mysticism' from the desert fathers through the patristic tradition to Byzantine hesychasm and its heritage in Russian monasticism It shows how the work of Palamas transcends the limits of one school of spirituality and renews in its deepest essence the life of the Christian Myster. A rich and engaging reading of the history and theology of Eastern Orthodox spirituality and the monastic movement of hesychasm This book seems to be a classic read on this subject as I have found Meyendorff to be uoted extensively in regards to Gregory Palamas A good read for anyone interested in this topic Plus I loved all of the artwork icons and photography included with the book
