St. Theophan the Recluse:
Thoughts for Each Day of the Year
According to the Daily Church Readings from the Word of God
"In the present book, Thoughts for Each Day of the Year, St. Theophan takes us through the yearly cycle of Gospel and Epistle readings, humbly and reverently offering us brief but powerful daily meditations on the word of God. He also addresses the problems of his day lack of faith, coldness of heart, trust in the rational mind rather than in the revealed Truth of God which are problems of our day as well."

The Gurus, the Young Man, and Elder Paisios
"Popular in Greece since its first publication there in 2001, The Gurus, the Young Man, and Elder Paisios is a page-turning narrative of both outward adventures and inward struggles. What stands out most in this book, however, is the radiant image of Elder Paisios, possessed of divine gifts, laboring in prayer for his fellow man, and overflowing with unconditional love. Through this, one sees the uncreated Source of the elder’s love and of the author’s spiritual transformation: the true God-man Jesus Christ, Who honors man’s personal freedom while drawing him, through love, into everlasting union with Himself."

THE SOUL AFTER DEATH
What happens to the soul when it leaves the body at death? What is its state from then until the Last Judgment? Do the numerous present-day books on life after death give any real answers to these questions, or are they only hints about a reality which even those who "return from the dead" often misunderstand?

SAINT SYMEON THE NEW THEOLOGIAN:
THE HYMNS OF DIVINE LOVE
Saint Symeon the New Theologian experienced the fullness of God. In profound stillness, noetic prayer, and divine illumination, during his all-night vigils the Holy Trinity revealed Himself with an intimacy rarely granted to even one person in a generation. The torrents of grace given to him prompted Saint Symeon to lead others to a similar experience through his holy writings. Boldly disclosing his encounters with God, Hymns of Divine Love has no peer with which to be compared. It stands apart at a height, divulging the experience of man’s deification in the Uncreated Light—perfect union with Christ the Bridegroom, Who came into the world for this very purpose.
“But what do you mean by acquiring the Holy Spirit?” asks Nicholas. “Somehow I don’t understand that. I want to understand it well! How am I to know whether He is with me or not? How can I discern for myself His true manifestation in me?”

SAINT GREGORY OF NYSSA:
THE LORD'S PRAYER & THE BEATITUDES
"“Prayer is intimacy with God and spiritual vision of the invisible. It satisfies all our yearnings and makes us equal to the angels. Through it good prospers, evil is destroyed, and sinners will be converted. Prayer is the enjoyment of things present and the substance of the things to come. Of all the things valued in this life nothing is more precious than prayer.” St. Gregory of Nyssa’s texts on the Lord’s Prayer and on the Beatitudes are the fruit of his spiritual union with God through prayer."
