by Elder Paisios of Mount Athos
Paperback; 171 pages
The book which describes St Aresenios's remarkable Life falls into three parts. In the first, the Elder Paisios tells how it came to be written: how he first became attracted to the subject, how we was actually baptised by the Saint, who foresaw his monastic future, and how he meticulously gathered and sifted material before finally committing in to paper.
The secont part is the Life proper, a more or less chronogical account of the Saint' s activities and miracles, ending with his falling-asleep in Corfu, with illuminating insights into both his personality and the way in which the Grace of God acted within him. The third part describes the miracles of Saint Arsenios the Cappadocian.
