Format: Paperback
I must commend Mount Thabor on the publication of "Remember Thy First Love" - there is nothing like it in the English language. I can say with no reserve that i consider this to be one of the most important books ever published in English; it makes the struggles of the spiritual life comprehensible, and gives inspiration to the Christian to endure in his struggle. I pray that everyone has the opportunity to experience this text.

Fr. Matthew

This is one fabulous book. I cannot put it down. The writer draws you to be introspective and is very inspirational.

I sometimes reach out and just open it up to any page, and read and read and read. Even if I just read a couple of pages, I get so much out of it. I would recommend this highly - especially to those who are serious about their faith and their journey to salvation. Very very good.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David A. Naess on January 23, 2012
Format: Paperback
On a recent trip to an Orthodox Monastery I asked the Igumen:
"What are the best resources for learning asceticism outside of the monastery?"

This book was number one on his list -- with good reason!

Most of the other books were written centuries ago. This book is written for the modern day ascetic aspirant and takes the realities of the modern world into consideration.

Whereas the ascetics and Spiritual Fathers of days gone by could perform miracles and even raise the dead, Elder Sophrony states that merely KEEPING THE FAITH in the modern world is as great a deed as raising the dead was in the past.

This book is a true spiritual jewel, and I can't recommend it enough. Whether you are an Orthodox Christian who has been living in the Orthodox Church for years, or a newcomer to Orthodoxy, you WILL benefit a lot from this book. Make sure you read it with a pencil ready, to underline thoughts which you find to be particularly important and/or inspiring for you. Believe me, there will be A LOT of such thoughts in this book!
