This is the most complete biography of Elder Joseph the Hesychast. The book contains the very personal account of Elder Ephraim telling the life of his Elder Joseph the Hesychast, whose holiness made him one of the most influential monks on the Holy Mountain in the twentieth century. Many of these fascinating stories have never been published before, including delightful anecdotes about Elder Joseph’s brotherhood, moving accounts of his spiritual struggles, insightful spiritual counsels from his deep wisdom, and amazing miracles.
The book includes dozens of black&white and color photos

LOVE this book! Ephraim is a living archangel on earth... the devil is trying to harm him + our orthodox monastics. Pray for them.
