Presents the esoteric, original core of Christianity.
This book presents the esoteric original core of Christianity with its concern for illuminating and healing the inner life of the individual. It is a bridge to the often difficult doctrines of the early church fathers, explaining the spiritual psychology of the fathers that underlies the current renewal of spirituality in the Greek church. This renewal, like this book, is closely linked to the understandings of the modern monks and abbots on Mount Athos.
A Different Christianity is useful to the practitioner, as well as to the scholar, providing new insights into the problems of studying and following the spiritual path outside of a monastery.
Robin Amis, Director of Praxis Research Institute, is one of the small circle of people regarded on Mount Athos as 'fellow workers. ' He compiled and published >The Heart of Salvation, a life and teachings of Saint Theophan the Recluse, the great Russian master of the last century.
