Author: BISHOP IGNATIUS BRIANCHANINOV #: 10406
Bishop Ignatius was a great 19th century Russian monastic leader and teacher of the Church, who wrote this book initially for Orthodox monks and nuns—however, much of the book is applicable to the spiritual life of lay people in today's world.

THE HEART OF ORTHODOX MYSTERY

Author: WILLIAM BUSH #: 10408
It is only within the heart of the Orthodox Church and its “lifestyle” of fasting and prayer that the lover of Christ gradually comes to realize that from the beginning of time, he or she has forever been a small part of the whole of creation, and that he or she is thereby inextricably related both to God and to all of God’s works. In this remarkable book William Bush, the best-selling author of The Mystery of The Church shows the reader how he or she may begin to grasp, bit by bit, that all that he or she does mystically affects not just himself or herself, but, in union with Christ and within the divine economy, the whole of the Church“s cosmic witness for God in the fallen world.

MONASTIC WISDOM: THE LETTERS OF ELDER JOSEPH THE HESYCHAST

Author: ELDER JOSEPH THE HESYCHAST #: 10409
Elder Joseph the Hesychast (+1959) was one of the greatest ascetics of our century. He arrived at the Holy Mountain in time to be benefited and guided by a number of holy monks of the previous century, but the remainder of his life coincided with an era of general spiritual decline and depopulation on the Holy Mountain. He thus became a vital link in the golden chain of Athonite tradition for contemporary Orthodoxy.

RIDING WITH THE LION: IN SEARCH OF MYSTICAL CHRISTIANITY

Author: KYRIACOS C. MARKIDES #: 10412
In this book, Kyriacos C. Markides helps to recover the mystical heart of Christianity, confirming that there is a direct tradition of spiritual practices that the mainstream Church has managed to ignore and even suppress. Markides` pursuit of higher knowledge leads him on a quest from Maine to New York, London and Cyprus and to ancient monasteries on the coast of Greece. His revelation of a vital, living mystical practice, based in ancient Christian thought, is a major step in linking the most esoteric traditions of the East to the largely hidden esoteric traditions of the West.

DAILY READINGS IN ORTHODOX SPIRITUALITY

Author: #: 10415
"I am an Orthodox Christian." In the West, people often find this a confusing statement. Many feel that you have left out the necessary qualifier: "Do you mean Russian Orthodox or Greek Orthodox?" How are we to define this word "Orthodox" in a way that transcends and yet accounts for ethnic backgrounds? What sets apart the Orthodox from other Christians so that we find a book of readings which singles out the "Orthodox" tradition?
