Started two new books recently. One is Jesus: A Life by A.N. Wilson. It's hardly orthodox, but it is at least an engaging read (which sort of reminds me of his biography on Paul). The second book is Scripture and Tradition by Archbp. Chrysostomos and Bp. Auxentios. Of the Orthodox books on this subject that I've read, I remember this one being the most helpful, so I figured I'd buy it and read it again. Luckily I snatched it up for $5, as the only other copy now on Amazon is $153.97!

Currently i'm finishing up reading Star Trek TNG Crossover by Michael Jan Friedman. It's alright as far as Star Trek books go. Late in May i read "7th Heaven" by James Patterson which i thought was pretty good... i have been enjoying reading murder mysteries and sci fi/star trek books lately.

Still into light reading at the moment. Just finished "Ragamuffin Gospel" and thought it a little on the unbalanced side, but a pleasant read all the same. And I've just about finished three of Paul Doherty's books about political intrigue and murder in Ancient Rome set just after St Constantine has become emperor of the west.

You might like his Abba's Child.  I say might because it's been 4 years since I've read it so I don't remember much about it.  I seem to recall that I did enjoy it at the time though.

Thanks, Gabriel. I'll have a look at that. I did like the Ragamuffin, but it seemed just a little unbalanced; though I understood his need to get the point across that God is unconditional in His love and we should be, too. It was a nice read.

My favorite Steinbeck work is Cannery Row.  His characters are described so richly and descriptively that it's easy to 'see' them.  He understands the human condition very well and I think most people can identify with at least parts of his characters or at least his narrative.

I just finished Vladimir Lossky's "Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church" (in Russian, http://www.wco.ru/biblio/books/lossk1/Main.htm).
I started reading Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church (in English) this weekend.
I'm about halfway through William Rosen's Justinian's Flea.  And for fun, I'm reading Noah Charney's The Art Thief.

Can you believe that I've never read Sweet Thursday?  And here I call myself a Steinbeck fan!  Really, though, I've read a great many of his fictional work and he's honestly, thus far, my favorite American author.  As for foreign authors, well, I'm no xenophobe, but I don't know whom to begin with.  I've read The Brothers K and liked it, but I'm having a rough time with Crime and Punishment.

"Sweet Thursday" is a sequel to "Cannery Row." Very much the same style, and many heroes are the same. Incredible sense of humor, humility, lightness...

Let us begin to really belong to the Orthodox Church of Christ.  Our ‘membership’ is not enough.  Something must move within us that makes us different from the world around us… even if that world calls itself ‘Christian’ or even ‘Orthodox.’  Let us keep and nourish those qualities of the true Orthodox worldview – a living, normal attitude; loving and forgiving; not self-centered; preserving our innocence and un-worldliness; even with a full and humble awareness of our own sinfulness and the power of the worldly temptations which surround us.  If we truly live this Orthodox worldview our faith will survive the shocks ahead of us and be a source of inspiration and salvation for those who will still be seeking Christ even amidst the shipwreck of humanity which has already begun today.

I never believed anyone could turn Lewis' masterpiece of defeating prejudice and living the Christian life even when God seems far away into such a bloodbath. That movie is not for children at all. Fortunately, the books are still as fantastic as ever.

Agreed, it was all battle scenes and none of the actual storyline.  But, that's Disney and Hollywood for you.

They did the first one better, but I guess redemption and defeat of evil are more Hollywood-friendly themes than tolerance and perseverance.

Currently The Isaac Play by Margaret Frazer (who also wrote the Dame Frivisse series), the first in a (relatively) new series by her about a group of English play performers in the mid-15th century.  I like the way she writes but there's WAY too much backstory going on.  The main crisis (a murder, natch) doesn't occur until almost 1/3 of the way through the book.  I'll give the next one in the series a try but if it's the same, I'll be leaving this one behind.

I have just read St. John Chrysostom's "Homilies on Genesis" (in a Russian translation). It took me quite a while to get used to St. John style; at first, I was irritated because it seemed to me that he is too verbose and not really focused, that his thought jumps from subject to subject. But then, eventually, I did get used to his peculiar style. After all, we are talking about someone who lived in the late 4th century A.D. (when they definitely had different idea about what's good analytical writing), and someone who was famous for being a "rhetor," a public speaker-propagandist rather than a scholar-logocian. I think I benefited a lot from reading this book. Many interesting, deep thoughts, especially about the nature of God's so-called "punishments" (which are always, as St. John emphasizes, "therapeutic" rather than vindictive). Also, I was pretty surprised that there is almost no Platonism in this work. Chrysostom does not, for example, speak about "coats of skins" as the indication that the pre-lapsarian human body was "ethereal, light," but became "stout" after the Fall. In his mind, it seems, the consequence of the Fall was not a physical, but a psychological change in the humans, the emergence of certain wild, un-quenchable desires.

I'm into Gore Vidal's Julian.  It is very anti-Christian (not to mention anti-Orthodox), but it is extremely well written and I'm enjoying every page of it.  I'm also counterbalancing it with G.W. Bowersock's Julian which is an actual historical biography.  I recommend both.

I've finished both Talks With Father Paisios and Elder Hadji-Georgis. I loved both of the books and strongly recommend them both. Smiley I'm reading Elder Joseph the Hesychast: Struggles, Experiences, Teachings which I'm about half way through it is very good. I've been looking at any books about monasticism especially stuff on Elder Paisios or Elder Joseph the Hesychast and other Athonite Fathers, I'm soon going to get Monastic Wisdom: The Letters of Elder Joseph the Hesychast along with Athonite Fathers and Athonite Matters by Elder Paisios.

Currently reading "The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time" by Mark Haddon.
It's listed as "teenage fiction", but I'm finding it quite brilliant. It's a "murder mystery" written from the perspective of 15 year old "Christopher" who has Asperger Syndrome. His concrete but logical thinking and inability to understand social cues and other's non-verbal communication both help and hinder his investigation of the "murder" of his neighbour's dog- and much more!

^ Interesting. I had a student with Asperger's a couple of years ago. She was a sweet kid when she had a good day, but she was so easily frustrated that I had to create a deal with her that she could sit in the hall by herself when she felt she had to be alone. This agreement helped to calm her, but she still missed out on a lot of instruction.

At the bookstore the other day, I was thumbing through Why People Die by Suicide by Thomas Joiner.  Dr. Joiner lost his father to suicide in 1990 and the book develops a models as to why people commit suicide, one of which is the increased tolerance for pain while negating the self-preservation instinct.

I'm also waiting for the 2nd Edition of Reading People: How to Understand People and Predict Their Behavior- -Anytime, Anyplace by  Jo-Ellan Dimitrius & Mark C. Mazzarella.  I read the 1st Edition until I lost the book.

"New Lies for Old" and "The Perestroika Deception" by Anatoliy Golitsyn. Here's a link to full text in English (PDF file):

http://www.conspiracyresearch.org/forums/index.php?s=f5bd0e72b4cee04eb3a2afe3f5e1190b&act=attach&type=post&id=452

The books are, essentially, a compillation of memoranda sent to the CIA and other Western agencies by a former KGB officer in the years 1961-1989. Overall, might seem a bit "alarmist" or even "conspirationist," but a very interesting read. Quite a thought-provoking work.
