In contrast to his other biographical works on the life and teachings of St. Silouan, in We Shall See Him As He Is Archimandrite Sophrony chronicles his own spiritual journey through atheism and Eastern religions to the Orthodox Christianity of his native Russia and expounds on the Gospel theme of repentance as a severe yet blissful journey into the depths of God. A sense of Father Sophrony's warm sympathy is brought out when he speaks of how God's presence seems at times to vanish, so that we begin to share in God's 'I AM' in the heights of His humility. 'I the act of divinisation,' writes Fr. Sophrony, 'Grace exalts man from the dimensions and patterns of earth to the dimensions and patterns of divine life' where he becomes a person in communion with the Trinity. This is not the systematic theology or abstract metaphysics. We are given insight into years of desperate search and the experience of finding rest in Christ. Advocating the truth of personhood for an impersonal generation, this work is, as a monk recently told us, 'an autobiography wich we hope the Holy Spirit will one day write upon all our hearts.' 237 pp.
