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

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 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.

Format: Paperback
It's absolutely the right book if you're experiencing God-forsakenness in a more or less degree.
The words of Archimandrite Zacharias are so filled up with Grace.
