Reviews - What do customers think about Heaven Begins Within You: Wisdom from the Desert Fathers?

original spirituality  Feb 17, 2008
Based on the writing of Evagrius this book presents the basic, down to earth approach to spirituality, using Christianity as a frame. Not the moral Christian theology loaded with the heavy burden of sin and condemnation but the fresh life affirming approach to your soul and to God. Like me, you do not need to be a "sworn Christian" to appreciate this book.
It is contemporary, eventhough it presents the ancient wisdom of the Desert Fathers. It's highly practical and inspiring, and it offers a really coherent guidance that connects psychology and religion. In our modern world this book tells you in which direction to look. It also helps you to walk your talk if you are really serious about your spiritual development. Buy it!
An essencial book  Jan 19, 2002
I have just loved reading this book because the author has provided us with essencial knowledge which means being closer to one's self,and finding God in happiness and sadness. The moving way he writes make us closer to ourself's , stimulates us to meditate about our shadows and lights and slowly incorporate everything that comes to us, transforming it all into a higher dimension.Finally, I would say that I have come to feel and experience God closer after reading this book.
Heaven Begins Within You  Jul 31, 2000
An Outstanding book, that we can incorporate into our daily lives, even though we are not monks. The practical knowledge is extremely useful in dealing with the human condition. It offers a fascinating perspective that wholeness with God can be obtained by exploring the depths of the human soul, instead of trying to reach the hights of God by our own works. The advice can certainly give us a new alternative to our debilitating habbits of unforgiveness and judgement. When something is over, it's over. These are words to live by. Also who am I to judge another when we are all so uniquely different. A tollerance and a compassion can be achieved with our fellow human beings with this new compelling philosophy. I highly reccomend this book.
