The Justice of God in Stages

$23.00

God calls man to a wondrous life. Knowledge of the rough and arduous way, but also of its luminous end, gives wisdom to the mind while begetting inspiration and confidence. It takes many trials to break open man’s heart so that it can be enlarged to accommodate the glorious Spirit of God. Spiritual rebirth does not take place in the bliss of the first grace, but after a painful struggle in the furnace of temptations when man convinces God that he indeed belongs to Him, whether he lives or dies.

  1. Emorfia Ryan (verified owner)

    We need a faithful guide to overcome this world, and to understand a yet unknown reality. To put ‘off the old man’ takes struggle, patience, love and ‘faith in things yet unseen’. Saints and monasticism have exclusively dedicated themselves to that awesome meeting with their maker. They have followed the narrow path of tribulation that yields the desired true wealth, the pearl of wisdom. This book outlines succinctly our experiential journey that others have taken and our heart confirms it. Our merciful Lord never leaves us floundering in the abyss of this world. “Like a mother hen”, He wants to gather us and console us in His infinite love.” Glory to God in the Highest, Hosanna, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.” Amen

    This book is like a very powerful compass to direct us along the Way, along the path that Christ sets before us each and every day.

    The Justice of God -these books get better and better. About the 3 stages of Orthodox spiritual life- I could see my darkened soul in the struggle for Gods mercy! I always place Arch Zacharias books next to my Orthodox Bible- where they belong! This book is worth it- a must for all who want to see where they are on the Path!!! Elated but totally humbled!
