Inhaltsangabe: "Now at the close of my life I have decided to talk to my brethren of things I would not have ventured to utter earlier, counting it unseemly...." Thus wrote Archimandrite Sophrony, then ninety-two years old, in We Shall See Him as He Is, his spiritual autobiography. In this book Fr. Sophrony, one of the most beloved orthodox Christian elders of our times, revealed to the world his own experience of union with God, and the path to that union. drawing near to God with intense love and longing accompanied by struggle, self-emptying and searing repentance, Fr. Sophrony was granted to participate in the life of God Himself through His uncreated Energies. Like orthodox saints throughout the centuries, he experienced God's grace as an ineffable, uncreated Light. It was in this Light that Christ was transfigured on Mount Tabor before His Apostles, and it is in this Light that we shall see Him as He is (I John 3:2). Born into a russian orthodox family in Moscow in 1896, Archimandrite Sophrony embarked on a successful career as a painter in Paris. There he delved into Eastern religions for a time, before repenting bitterly of this and returning to the faith of his childhood. After a brief period of theological study in Paris, he left for the ancient orthodox monastic republic of Mount Athos in Greece, where he spent fifteen years in a monastery and a further seven as a hermit "in the desert." on Mount Athos he became the spiritual son of a simple monk of holy life, Elder Silouan. It was under the guidance of Saint Silouan that Fr. Sophrony experienced divine illumination, knowing God intimately as Personal Absolute-as the one Who revealed Himself to the Prophet Moses as "I AM" and Who became incarnate as man in Jesus Christ. In 1959, Fr. Sophrony founded the Monastic Community of St. John the Baptist in Essex, England, which has since become a major orthodox spiritual center for all of Western Europe. Elder Sophrony reposed in 1993, at the age of 97.

Buchbeschreibung St. Herman's Press May 2008, 2008. Paper Back. Buchzustand: New. In contrast to his other biographical works on the life and teachings of St. Silouan, in We Shall See Him As He Is Archimandrite Sophrony chronicles his own spiritual journey through atheism and Eastern religions to the Orthodox Christianity of his native Russia and expounds on the Gospel theme of repentance as a severe yet blissful journey into the depths of God. A sense of Father Sophrony's warm sympathy is brought out when he speaks of how God's presence seems at times to vanish, so that we begin to share in God's 'I AM' in the heights of His humility. 'I the act of divinisation,' writes Fr. Sophrony, 'Grace exalts man from the dimensions and patterns of earth to the dimensions and patterns of divine life' where he becomes a person in communion with the Trinity. This is not the systematic theology or abstract metaphysics. We are given insight into years of desperate search and the experience of finding rest in Christ. Advocating the truth of personhood for an impersonal generation, this work is, as a monk recently told us, 'an autobiography wich we hope the Holy Spirit will one day write upon all our hearts.' 237 pp. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 139731
