From the Prologue: We often complain nowadays that to live according to God's commandments is a difficult struggle. We think that to be truly Christian we have to fast, pray, give alms and perform other such virtuous acts. And as we ponder over the trouble we have to take to be virtuous and live a life in Christ, we lose heart and give up. Christ, however, suggested a very simple and easy way for us to please Him and avoid condemnation at the Last Judgment, saying: Do not judge in order not to be judged (Matt. 7:1-2).

From the Contents: 1. Prologue, 2. Malicious Gossip and passing Judgment, 3. Causes and Types of Criticism, 4. The Results of Judging our Fellows, 5. Saints shelter the Sinner, 6. Correcting a Brother, 7. When we are the Subject of Gossip

A Little Gem

This isn't the biggest book on the shelf, but it's one of the most helpful & practical. The writing style is easy to read; no flowery, philosophical language that leaves you reaching for the dictionary. I especially like the many anecdotes sprinkled throughout the text, from teachers like Abba Moses & others, which create memorable visual images to drive home the teaching points. All in all, the best $8 I've spent in a long time!

Also, I'd like to say my entire order was well-packaged, & arrived timely and undamaged. Almost everything on my wish list was in stock & available to ship.

Great little book

A fairly quick read with tons of information. Athonite also has wonderful costumer service. Will be shopping with them again.
