I am reposting this review because The Jesus Prayer is on Sale for $2.99 on Kindle
Summary: A description of the famous short Orthodox prayer with a lot of insight into the Eastern Orthodox Church.
I read a lot of books on prayer. I found The Jesus Prayer on a random amazon surfing trip. I have had it on my kindle for a couple months reading a little bit at a time before finishing it up this week while on vacation.
The Jesus Prayer is one of the early prayers of the church. There are variations of it, but it is essentially, “Lord Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy on me.” The history of this prayer goes back to at least the fourth century.
