THE LAMENT OF EVE
If you learned to appreciate the Holy Fathers in The Bible and the Holy Fathers for Orthodox and in Grace for Grace: The Psalter and the Holy Fathers, you will want to read The Lament of Eve.

A Prologue provides commentary from Saints Basil the Great, John Chrysostom, Gregory of Nazianzus, Symeon the New Theologian, Gregory of Nyssa, Didymus the Blind, Irenaeus and others. The Lament of Eve follows in simple style for easy reading and presentation for both elementary and advanced Bible Study. Annotations key the more significant statements to their patristic sources. Many surprising and thought-provoking insights are included to spark lively discussions at spiritual retreats and Lenten get-togethers on:
An Epilogue in three inspiring parts develops the themes of love, hope, salvation, resurrection, restoration and theosis through Christ.
