The Ascetical Homilies of St. Isaac the Syrian are sublimely beautiful and indispensable instructions on prayer and the spiritual life. Like a shining light, St. Isaac's grace-filled Homilies have lead generations of God-thirsty souls towards true inner stillness and prayer of the heart. Included in the book is an informative introduction discussing the life of St. Isaac, the manuscripts and translations of his homilies, as well as maps, a glossary of special terms, and more. All the homilies by Saint Isaac which were in the first edition are included here, plus two newly translated from the Syriac that were omitted from the first edition. Translated from the Greek and Syriac by the Holy Transfiguration Monastery.
