This classic of world spiritual literature is the firsthand account of a pilgrim's journey as he endeavors to live out Saint Paul's instruction to "pray without ceasing." The narrator, an unnamed nineteenth-century peasant, sets out on his pilgrimage with nothing but a Bible, a rosary, and some dried bread. As he walks, he recites the Jesus prayer ("Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me")-a prayer that is said to quiet anxiety and fill the heart with love for all creation. With this prayer constantly on his lips, the pilgrim undergoes a profound spiritual education. This edition includes the sequel to The Way of a Pilgrim, entitled A Pilgrim Continues His Way, which contains a lengthy appendix reviewing the teachings of the Holy Fathers on the Jesus prayer.… (more)

Two books in one, likely by different authors, I only finished The Way of a Pilgrim, but deeply enjoyed this Eastern devotional work, one of my favorites of this year. The pilgrim meditates on what it means to "pray unceasingly" and to live a Christian life. It is memorable and worth it's short length. ( )

We accompany a Pilgrim wandering from place to place in Russia and Siberia as he searches for an answer to the question "How can you learn to pray without ceasing"? [1 Thessalonians 5:17] He shares his growing insight through a series of conversations with holy men who guide him to the answer he seeks. This edition benefits from an insightful introduction by Huston Smith.

  saintmarysaccden | Feb 19, 2013 |
One of the most important prayers to engage in for the love of God is what is called the Jesus Prayer. In The Way of a Pilgrim we encounter what the prayer is and why it is important. An anonymous pilgrim describes his efforts to understand what St Paul advised us in his epistle to “pray ceaselessly”. This book describes the pilgrims wanderings and how his expereinces bring him to the wisdom of asking God simply and humbly for mercy. I could not put this book down once I started and it brought great joy to my heart. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
By the grace of God I am a Christian man, by my actions a great sinner, and by calling a homeless wanderer of the humblest birth who roams from place to place. My worldly goods are a knapsack with some dried bread in it on my back, and in my breastpocket a Bible. And that is all.
