    This book is comprised of two parts, the stanza, Prayers to Our Lord Jesus Christ, and the smaller, A Safeguard for the Soul, which consists of 30 meditations of 3 short paragraphs, and a conclusion I have to start off by stating I was impressed with the translation of the book Modeled on the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet, the translator kept the alphabetical order of each stanza in English Beginning with the Trinity, the prayers cover the events in the life of Christ The 30 meditation are taken form a yet unpublished in English book called Spiritual Exercises While most of these fit on one page, they are quite dense, often focusing on death and the afterlife, and how one should strive to live their life in Christ These are stone cold sober meditations, and if you are interested in looking for feel good inspirational writings, one should go elsewhere.Based on the nature of these writings, I cannot rate this book I did find the writings very useful, and I plan on returning to these pages often I am also hoping that Fr Dokos, translates the Spiritual Exercises as he has translated other books by Nicodemos the Hagiorite Ratings are an indicator of a consumerist mindset, of which I too am guilty But these writing point to a higher reality, one of substance than He who dies with the most toys wins.
