"Sergius Bulgakov (1871-1944), a Russian theologian of Orthodoxy, grapples with Pascha in honest 'churchly' reflections. Translated by Boris Jakim, there is seldom witnessed a mark of strained piety. Instead, joy pervades four chapters about Pascha."
"Laurin Wenig spots challenges in the joy of Pascha. Her reflections melt away the cold of heart among readers and offer ever-new seeds to plant after winter's thaw. Paschal joy releases fears in her reflections."
"Seventy-two devotional readings have been assembled from Eastern and Western Christian sources. The entries are presented in grouped themes of invitation, temptation, passion, crucifixion, resurrection and new life. Ancient and modern Christian voices from Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe and North American provide global appeal."
"Father Lev [Gillet] provides a clear, concise introduction to holiness in prayer as Orthodox discipline to prepare us for Pascha. Just as important, this book awakens the soul's desire to know that God is good to each one of us."
