« on: November 20, 2009, 12:41:48 AM »
Does anyone know of any good books I could get that are written by Orthodox about the Christmas season or advent in the west. Thanks.

I'd heartily recommend Fr. Thomas Hopko's The Winter Pascha.  Very short, very readable and understood chapters about the various days of the Nativity Fast.  Definitely worth your time.
