I've been reading this book for the past week and almost can't put it down. Matthew the Poor was a Coptic monk who died in 2006. The book I'm reading was published by St. Vladimir's Seminary Press. It's a book about prayer life, the stages of prayer, how to prayer, what the highest form of prayer is like etc... One of the things I like the most, is that at the end of every chapter, he has a list of quotes of Saints about the subject he just touched on. Most of the quotes so far have been from people like St. Issac the Syrian, St. Macarius the Great, St. Augustine, St. Clement of Rome, St. John Cassian and John of Dalyatha (Coptic Saint).

I was wondering though, I'm assuming this is an ok book for us as EO to read since SVS published it. I haven't seen any Christological issues present in it yet, and it's seemed completely Orthodox. I was just wondering if it is ok to read or if I'm missing some important discrepancies.
