Father Seraphim Rose: His Life and Works, by Hieromonk Damascene

I haven't read this new version yet, and it was probably 8 years ago that I read the Not of This World version, so I've probably forgotten quite a bit. This book has had a huge impact on my priest since he read it a year ago... maybe there'll be a similar result with me  Smiley

"About Time", a collection of wonderful short stories (most dealing with time travel) by the late great +Jack Finney.  (He also wrote some great novels, like "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and "Time and Again".)

just started reading 'the case for god' by karen armstrong.

Let us know what you think of it.  I've wanted to read it, but I keep postponing it (for some reason!).  I think it's because it might be too academic for my tastes.  But let us know.

I thought it was an interesting journey through the history of religion, philosophy, and christianity particularly as she shows how humanity has searched for the transcendant reality. Her chapter entitled "silence" which focuses on the eastern mystical spirituality particular to Orthodoxy is worth the read, IMO. She has very liberal views about God and the Bible in general, but her message that conveyed humanities need for contemplating the transcendant in one form or another was convincing.

Fear the Borg!  Wink  Seriously though, I remember reading a few books by him before I became Orthodox... something like "Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time" and something else. I disagreed with him, even then, but I thought his heart was in the right place. *shrugs*


I think this is about the third time... maybe 3 1/2. The first couple times though I just couldn't really get out of it what lots of other people do. I liked it and all, I just didn't see it as a spiritual classic. It's growing on me more with each time I read it though, I think.

The Way of a Pilgrim

I found that book in a little used bookstore while tree planting in Northern Saskatchewan maybe 12 years ago. That is the book that first introduced me to Orthodox spirituality, and remains a favorite of mine.

I read Borg many years ago. My opinion at the time: he strips Christianity of its mythical aspects entirely, leaving little else but humanism... with a tip of the hat to Jesus.

So far I seem to like how he addresses faith. He addressed 4 different meanings of faith, empasizing the types that focus on faith of the heart (3) rather than the head (1).

The Gurus, the Young Man, and Elder Paisios by Dionysios Farasiotos.

One of the best books I've ever read. Wow! I wish to express my gratitude to Ionnis and Andrew 21091 for recommending this powerful, frightening, but ultimately inspiring autobiographical account. This is the personal story a "spiritual seeker's" deliverance from demonic possession and his embrace of the Orthodox Faith. This is one of those books that I just couldn't put down. Even when I knew I shouldn't be reading it right before I went to sleep, I just couldn't help myself. You will most likely need to order this book from Amazon, as none of the bookstores I contacted were able to order it for me.

Starting Byzantium: The Surprising Life of a Medieval Empire by Judith Herrin.

Good academic study of the subject; she does a few things that drive me nuts (like persisting in her use of the name "Byzantine" throughout the book).

Re-reading Partakers of Divine Nature by Archimandrite Christoforos Stavropoulos (transl. Fr. Stanley Harakas) for a book study I'll be leading soon.

Still reading it; and it's still an awesome book.

And still trudging through The Way of the Spirit: Reflections on Life in God by Archimandrite Aimilianos of Simonopetra.  As soon as I finish this one, I'll move on to C.S. Lewis' The Four Loves.

This has been put on hold to read (with wifey) "Husband Coached Childbirth" by Bradley.

Yes, I remember having the same impression of sincerity from him. I really do believe he is sincere. I think his research into historical/critical biblical scholarship messed him up pretty bad, and he is reaching for a way to hold it all together, to somehow save Christianity from what damage has been irreparably done through modern scholarship. I was sympathetic to his positions as I encountered them, and for a time even bought into some of them. Then Orthodoxy found me, and now I just feel sorry for him. Maybe I should read some of his books and then try to write him a letter potentially exposing him to Orthodoxy. Do you think that is a totally ridiculous idea?

Sounds interesting:

Quote
As if all of this weren't enough, Leithart saves the best for last. He argues brilliantly that what Constantine actually did was to "desacrifice" Rome in order to establish it upon the true sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Constantine enacted a "baptism" out of the world of Rome, and so he eliminated the competing Roman sacrifices: those associated with senatorial decisions, military victories, and the emperor. Instead, it was the sacrifice of Jesus Christ that became the founding sacrifice of the new city, the eschatological city. As with our individual baptisms, the consistent and holy implications of this baptism of the Empire would have to be worked out, imperfectly, in history.

"Through Constantine, Rome was baptized into a world without animal sacrifice and officially recognized the true sacrificial city, the one community that does offer a foretaste of the final kingdom."
