There is something jarring in the title: the juxtaposition of ''orthodox,'' with its connotations of permanence, objectivity, and antiquity, and ''psychotherapy,'' which evokes the essence of modern psychological subjectivity and technique. But the author uses the latter word in its literal sense, that is, ''healing of the soul.'' The ''science'' spoken of in the subtitle refers to the systematic application of the teachings of the Philokalia, St. Gregory Palamas, and other spiritual fathers to the arduous process of freeing the heart and mind from evil thoughts and the passions in order to attain to the freedom of the children of God, to enjoy ''the unceasing festival of those who behold the ineffable beauty'' of the face of God. In short, the author offers us nothing less than a sort of guidebook to the process of theosis. The result has stuck a chord: the book has been translated into English, French, Spanish, Russian, and Arabic since its publication in 1987. 369 pp.
