I am looking into what books are out there on Saint Silouan and of course the writings by Archimandrite Sophrony are going to be the first to read. Now, as far as I can see there are three books by Fr. Sophrony that are directly about Saint Silouan: "Saint Silouan the Athonite" "The Monk of Mount Athos", and "Wisdom from Mount Athos".
However, when looking at the descriptions for these three books it sounds as if "The Monk of Mount Athos" and "Wisdom from Mount Athos" are in essence just "Saint Silouan the Athonite" broken up into two different books, the first detailing Saint Silouan's life and the second his actual writings and teachings.
Is there anyone who has looked at all three of these books and could tell whether this is the case, or whether the two smaller books are perhaps supplementary to the larger biography? Also, while we're at it, are there are any recommendations for other books about Saint Silouan? Thanks everybody!
