I would suggest Orthodox Faith and Life in Christ, and The Orthodox Church and Ecumenism, by St. Justin Popovich. The first is a collection of essays that touches upon everything from epistemology to the lives of the saints, and the second one is about Orthodox ecclesiology, ecumenism, humanism, etc. Both are available through St. Nektarios Press.
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft
