John Climacus patterned this book after the vision of a ladder to heaven seen by Jacob in Genesis. Each step on the ladder is either something to practice or avoid in your life. The Ladder of Divine Ascent is required reading for all monastics in the Eastern Orthodox Churches. John Climacus and this book are commemorated every year on the fourth Sunday of the Great Fast.
