This classic of Orthodox 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," (1 Thes. 5:17). The narrator, an unnamed nineteenth-century peasant, sets out on his pilgrimage with nothing but a Bible, a prayer rope, and some dried bread. As he walks, he recites the Jesus Prayer ("Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner"). 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. This excellent translation includes a wonderful Orthodox introduction by Protopresbyter Thomas Hopko.
