Made for Union: The Sacramental Spirituality of St. Nikodemos of the Holy Mountain

$33.00

Book: Sewn hardcover, printed in two colors with gilded edges and page marker ribbon. 260pp..17x24cm.

Made for Union, by Rev. Fr. George Dokos, presents a comprehensive study of the sacramental spirituality of St. Nikodemos of the Holy Mountain, a Saint of the Orthodox Church who flourished in the late 18th and early 19th century during the period of the Ottoman Occupation. Although a monk and serious ascetic himself, St. Nikodemos emphasized in his many works the centrality and necessity of the liturgy and sacraments in the life of the Christian.

From the Foreword (by V. Rev. Archimandrite Maximos Constas)

In a series of richly and meticulously documented chapters, Fr. Dokos details St. Nikodemos’ sacramental spirituality, providing us with a detailed presentation of the sacramental foundations of the saint’s thought and theology. After an introduction covering the saint’s life and work, the book begins with a general overview of St. Nikodemos’s ecclesiology, in which the Church is the locus of new life in Christ. This is followed by chapters on Baptism, Chrism, Eucharist, and Confession and Repentance. Fr. Dokos possesses a virtually unparalleled familiarity with St. Nikodemos’ writings, which he has studied both deeply and widely, bringing the full range of the saint’s teaching to bear on the subject. His book provides us with an important corrective to the specious separation of “private” ascetic prayer and “public” liturgy.

      After reading this beautiful book, I have a much deeper understanding of why the Church is always the center of our spiritual life, as well as a fuller appreciation for each of the Sacraments he discusses. No matter how long you have been an Orthodox Christian, I predict you will learn something new. Highly recommended.
