This book is the first comprehensive presentation of the teachings of over 120 Orthodox Saints and dozens of holy hierarchs, clergy, and theologians on the subject of the soul’s exodus to the next life. With over 750 pages of source material featuring many rare images and dozens of texts translated into English for the first time, The Departure of the Soul is unique as both the sole reference edition on the subject and a fascinating and spiritually profitable book for anyone seeking insight into one of the greatest mysteries of all. The book also reveals over 100 falsifications, misrepresentations, and errors contained in the publications of authors who oppose the teaching of the Church, thus definitively ending the 40-year controversy in the Church.

  1. Very Readable 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th May 2017

    Only recently have I acquired this volume and have not yet read it completely but am already satisfied with the gentle flow of the text, the careful balancing of concerns. It appears imminently a pastoral approach. There is a very extensive section of photo reproductions of icons and related art pertinent to the subject. This will be a carefully, slowly, and respectfully read volume, good for mind and heart.
