The first step in the journey of repentance is often the most difficult to take. The journey itself can at times be confusing, burdensome and even painful. With it comes a host of questions:
“Does God hear my repentance? Am I doing it right? How do I confess properly?” And more!
The purpose of this book is to simply shed a little bit of light on some of the answers to these questions. Found within this book are a number of stories, illustrations and references to spiritual giants – all of which are included to help guide the reader to the feet of Christ in confession!
The second part of the books is a hidden gem of Orthodoxy: St Ephraim the Syrian’s homily on the sinner woman, “For She Loved Much.” This is a beautiful retelling of the story of the adulteress, highlighting the path she would have endured on her journey to the feet of Christ.
