This Week’s Featured Book

The Seer: The Life of the Prophet Samuel and its Relevance Today

by Metropolitan Hierotheos of Nafpaktos

Early chapters focus on Hannah’s prayer and discuss prayer of the heart. There are practical comments about family relationships and bringing up children in the Church. The chapter on Samuel’s sons considers why children from devout families sometimes rebel. The Prophet Samuel received revelations from God and possessed the spiritual gifts of clear sight and seeing into the future. There is a detailed discussion of what exactly these charismas are and why God bestows them. There is a compelling account of how Saul was filled with the Holy Spirit when anointed by Samuel, and how he later lost this gift. Saul’s sins seem superficially trivial, but were actually so grave that they caused God to ‘change His mind’ about him.

As a spiritual father, the author, His Eminence the Metropolitan Hierotheos, is able to understand and describe Samuel’s profound grief over Saul’s fall.

The Seer is an interesting, enlightening and very readable book for the general reader about a major biblical and historical figure.
