Adapted and arranged from the classic work by Lorenzo Scupoli, Spiritual Combat, as edited by St. Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain and again by St. Theophan the Recluse. A spiritual classic for over 400 years. Edited and revised by two great Orthodox saints. Fr. Sparks has selected passages from this timeless work and recast it with the lay reader in mind. The result is a profoundly rich and practical spiritual resource.
