Obedience Author:Archimandrite Chrysostomos "Archimandrite Chrysostomos has the major responsibility for writing an impressive second volume in the series, Themes in Orthodox Patristic Psychology. Its subject is the central attitude and virtue of Obedience, essential for the Christian life of monks as well as of laity. It spells out the meaning of obedience to God, the Church, one's spiri... more »tual advisors, and in the secular order also. It is founded on the perfect obedience of the Son to the Father, on the examples of the great Orthodox saints and hermits and monks. It is further shown to be essential in the modern world of today where relativism and nihilism otherwise rule, creating anarchy and infidelity. An extra value is the freshness of the new translations from the Desert Fathers. I commend the book warmly as an important insight for all ecumenists."
