Overview

Written in the 19th century by an anonymous Russian pilgrim and translated from the Russian by R.M. French, this little book has become a spiritual classic on the Jesus Prayer. Filled with insights on how to maintain a prayerful presence in the face of predicaments, adventures and calamities, it was preserved for posterity by the pilgrim's spiritual adviser, a wise old monk who recorded these tales of the pilgrim's dedicated life-style, and then began to pass the manuscript on to those who wanted to know why Jesus told his disciples to "pray without ceasing." This narrative about the wayfarer's longings to communicate with God is especially inspiring and apt for today's busy person who is looking for that quiet center of spiritual strength. This version has been updated with modern words used for archaic terms making it more readable for the American audience by editor Faith Annette Sand.

Editorial Reviews

Authorized Contributor
The title in Russia is literally "Candid narratives of a pilgrim to his spiritual father." Whether the narrative is a literal autobiographical narrative, or alternatively is fictitious, metaphorical, or pedagogical, is not known with certainty. It and its sequel, The Pilgrim Continues his Way, are included here. It is the focus of the story "Franny" from the 1961 collection of short stories, Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger.
Book Review Editor
"A truly classic of Orthodox spirituality on the origin and practice of the Jesus Prayer."

Meet the Author

An anonymous Russian peasant told his tale of how he learned to use the Jesus Prayer as a means of spiritual meditation to a pious monk who wrote down his stories each time he appeared. The manuscript first appeared at the Mt. Athos Monastery in Greece in the 19th century and from the anecdotes it is assumed that this describes events happening between 1853-1861. It was first published in Kazan in 1884 and translated by R.M.French and published in English in 1931. It was used by J.D.Salinger as "the little green book" in "Franny and Zooey".

    A Christian Spiritual Classic

    We are all pilgrims, each on our way. Why should the Christian pursue yoga or Buddhism when the Jesus Prayer was given to us long ago to attain peace? You won't find this among the pop best sellers in the Protestant Christian book store.
