I have a first edition of this little book. I recently purchased a more modern edition and donated it to our parish library. This book is an excellent primer for anyone interested in learning about hesychasm and the Jesus prayer.

Fr. David Hester's little work is not meant as a comprehensive look at the subject, but he introduces the prayer, its development into the "modern" form, and the major personalities involved in the development of hesychasm from the very early centuries of Christianity through the Nineteenth Century.

The bibliography in this little book is very important. The reading list will guide the reader to the major writings that are so key to understanding hesychasm and the use of the Jesus prayer. This book is itself is a good place to begin one's study.

I should admit that I was a little hesitant to purchase this little book because I naively thought that such a (comparatively) little piece of literature couldn't possibly contain any significantly new information on the subject that I haven't previously read (and I thought that I did read quite a few works about hesychasm - but it turns out that I am "still in the dark")...
As I started reading the book(let), I realized that it was much more informative and captivating than I expected and I did end up learning a lot about the "general" history of hesychasm as well as about a variety of specific apsects of the hesychastic tradition in particular...
I would definitely recommend this very important work to anyone interested in the subject - and I would also recommend that you get interested in the subject if you haven't been so far - you won't regret it!
Also, as mentioned in the first review, the references are of a great importance due to the "substantial" nature of the sources used/listed.
Thank you for the time you spent reading this review - I can assure you it was not in vain!

God Bless!
