Author: Metropolitan Anthony (Khrapovitsky)
This is a classic work of pastoral theology, written by the first ruling Bishop of the Russian Church Abroad. Whilst primarily a manual for priests hearing confessions it is also of great value to all who struggle with the passions. It covers the significance of confession for Christians, the spiritual director's disposition, healing, doubt, sin, fear, despondency, pride, money, envy, chastity, etc. The appendices include extracts form the Order of Confession, a "template" for a brief confession and questions for an examination of conscience.
