This was given to us eons ago by my brother-in-law, who was spiritually swept away by the book. It is an English translation from the Russian (19th century). At times it was believed to be a hoax, but I think the hoax theory has been rebuked, and it's now felt to be either the recounting of a pilgrim's journey, or a way of teaching meditation and prayer. The pilgrim travels practicing what is known as ceaseless inner praying of the Jesus prayer:
Κύριε Ἰησοῦ Χριστέ, Υἱὲ τοῦ Θεοῦ, ἐλέησόν με τὸν ἁμαρτωλόν.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
