Inner River: A Pilgrimage to the Heart of Christian Spirituality
In Inner River, Kyriacos Markides - scholar, researcher, author and pilgrim - takes us on a thrilling quest into the heart of Christian spirituality and humankind's sidre for a transcedent experience of God. From Maine's rugged shores to a Cypriot monastery to Greece's remote Mt. Athos and, ultimately, to an Egyptian desert. Markides encounters a diverse cast of characters that allows him to exploire the worlds of the natural and the supernatural, of religion and spirit, and of the seen and unseen.
Inner River will appear to a wide range of resers, from Christians seeking insights into their religion and its various expressions to scholars interested in learning more about the mystical way of life and wisdom that have been preserved in the heart of Orthodox spirituality. Perhaps most imporant, however, is the bridge it offers contemporary readers to a Christian life that is balance between the worldly and the spiritual.
