“Norris Chumley traverses a spiritual landscape unfamiliar to most Westerners. . . . Take this book and read. Even better, read this book and accept its invitation to pray.” —Diana Butler Bass, author of A People’s History of Christianity
Norris Chumley presents a lavishly illustrated companion to the PBS documentary Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer. Readers can follow Chumle
y on a pilgrimage through the holiest sites of the early Christian world as he searches for modern-day practitioners of the ancient Eastern mystical tradition and its most sacred prayer: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.” This beautifully illustrated volume includes black-and-white and full-color images of the author’s travels through Eastern Europe, including rare pictures from visits to holy sites where photographers are only rarely granted access.
Find out more about the book at the website for Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer.
