He has studied at universities throughout the world, and received his doctorate degree from Oxford University. Fr. John is the author In the Heart of the Desert, Revised: The Spirituality of the Desert Fathers and Mothers.

After several months in silent retreat on Mt Athos, he served as Personal Assistant to the Greek Orthodox Primate in Australia (1984-94) and was co-founder of St Andrew’s Theological College in Sydney (1985), where he also taught Church History. In 1995, he moved to Boston, where he was appointed Professor of Theology at Holy Cross School of Theology and directed the Religious Studies Program until 2002. A member of the Office of Ecumenical and Inter-Faith Affairs of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, he coordinates the Social and Moral Issues Commission of the Orthodox Churches in America. Currently, he serves as theological advisor to the Ecumenical Patriarch on environmental issues.

Fr. John is the author of over twenty books and numerous articles in several languages on the Church Fathers and Orthodox Spirituality. He lives in Maine.
