EBOOK / PDF (The Arena An Offering to Contemporary Monasticism) author Ignatius Brianchaninov


The Arena An Offering to Contemporary MonasticismPerhaps the best book on Christian spirituality and Christian theology that I have ever read It came highly recommend to me by someone who I love and admire in the faith and it exceeded every expectation that I brought to it I would never suggest it as an introduction to someone new or interested in Orthodox Christianity There are BETTER BOOKS FOR THIS BUT FOR THOSE WHO ARE books for this But for those who are interested in living the faith in maturing in the faith these will find in Saint Ignatius Brianchaninov s words a spiritual vision steeped in the Holy Scriptures steeped in the Church Fathers and in the ascetic tradition of the one holy catholic and Tradition of the One Holy Catholic and Church I am sure of it A good book but many of the advices are only applicable to monks People who don t intend to live in a monastery for the rest of their lives need to read this book with discernment lest they take the too strict advice and apply it in a non monastery life This is a hard book for me to review On the one hand I totally recommend There were times when I was reading where I thought it was the best spiritual books I had read in months Chapter 28 On the Remembrance of Death and Chapter 44 had read in months Chapter 28 On the Remembrance of Death and Chapter 44 with Fallen Angels where articularly fruitful for me St Ignatius almost conceived me to become a monk I have no doubt this book can be an influential guide to sainthood However the major flaw in the book is erhaps an unease I have as a 21st Century Roman Catholic with St Ignatius s emphasis on servile fear Fair enough we should see ourselves as the first of all sinner. This is a classic text that offers many treasures for seekers of the spiritual life today Subjects covered include unceasing rayer the need for spiritual direction and the importance of Divine me.
