Already a Classic! – The Hidden Man of the Heart (2nd Edition)


Fr. Zacharias‘ own favorite, The Hidden Man of the Heart is already considered a classic!

The Hidden Man of the Heart, Archimandrite Zacharias‘ profoundest work to date, is back in print!

This second edition is also equipped with two indexes, an Index of Scriptural References and an Index of Names and Subjects.

The Hidden Man of the Heart consists of a series of presentations on the place of the heart in the spiritual life of the Christian, with special reference to the Hesychast tradition of the Orthodox Church, including two of the most influential figures in contemporary Christianity: Saint Silouan the Athonite (1866–1938) and Elder Sophrony of Essex (1896–1993).

Delivered in Wichita, Kansas at the 2007 Clergy Brotherhood Retreat of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church, each lecture is published here in full together with its corresponding Questions & Answers.
