Salt of the Earth is the heartwarming biography of Hieromonk Isidore (1814 1908), the great Elder of Gethsemane Hermitage in Russia.
Radiant with Christ-like love and childlike simplicity, Elder Isidore lived in another world, yet kept both feet firmly planted on the ground. He was one of those whom Christ called the salt of the earth (Matt. 5:13) a repository of the rare otherworldly savor of ancient Christianity.
In Salt of the Earth, both the life and personality of Elder Isidore have been captured with remarkable clarity by the Elder s spiritual son, New Martyr Paul Florensky ( 1937). He takes the reader directly into Fr. Isidore s world, so that by the time the book is finished, the Elder is already a dear friend.
This revised second edition contains additional material on the Elder by Metropolitan Benjamin (Fedchenkov).
