Description

Metropolitan Anthony (Bloom) of Sourozh (+2003) was one of the most respected churchmen, spiritual writers, and broadcasters on the world stage, inside and outside of the Orthodox Christian communion. His books, School of Prayer, Living Prayer, and God and Man have become classics. However, besides his public persona as a leader of the Russian Orthodox Church in Great Britain, who was Metropolitan Anthony as preacher and pastor? How did his experience as physician, monk, parish priest, spiritual father, and bishop affect his writings? How did his life story mold his perspective? In this comprehensive examination of Metropolitan Anthony s life and work, Gillian Crow presents a compelling portrait of a complex human being: a charismatic, warm person aglow with the joy of his faith, and a person who fought hard against the demons of shyness, insecurity, and depression. This sympathetic yet honest portrayal is essential reading for all those touched by Metropolitan Anthony s writing, who wish to discover more about his inner life.

Again as an Orthodox believer (greek) who never met Antony except at the congregation end of a liturgy or vigil in london cathedral ,and who drew inspiration from his presence rather more often than from his sermons , which sometimes were a bit kensongton and chelsea!! And who always saw him as a exceptional ,able and courageous human being and russian orthodox priest,with ALL HIS FLAWS, this book is an excellent timely read.
It is neither a hagiohraphy or a hatchet job. Just a picture of a modern russian orthodox bishop and the difficult times he lived in and who touched so many including me ..and yes his words too, even those who never actually met him in a personal setting . This sspect is inderd a mark of his holiness and his humsn flaws speak of a suffering human being in the mud of life seeing the stars and SHOWING THE STARS .

In this wonderful biography, Gillian Crow never claims to be writing a definitive
"life and work" study of the remarkable Metropolitan Anthony Bloom. Instead, she
is giving valuable "impressions" of the life and inner being of this man who was
(and still is, through his writings) an Orthodox spiritual father to so many. Those
of us who encounter him in his classic book "Beginning to Pray", a guide to the practice
of Christian prayer and well-respected by Orthodox and non-Orthodox alike, can''t help
but want to find out more about this holy man -- and this book fills that gap admirably.
From his pampered early years as the child of a Russian diplomat to the falling apart of
his world and family after the Russian revolution to his amazing conversion as an atheistic
teenager -- and his whole life as a monk, doctor, soldier, priest, and spiritual guide --
it is all covered. And the author never hesitates to cover the "dark side" of this man who
remained a flawed human being even as he worked to live the Gospel and put on the mind of Christ.
Warmest recommend.

An absolutely brilliant book. I have read a few of Metropolitan Anthony`s books, but there is much in this biography that is new to me, and very revealing about this Holy Man.
