So... a year on.
Has anyone found any more interesting reading material that they would like to recommend.
Two recent favourites of mine are:
"The Sublime Life of Monasticism" by Bishop Mattheas
"A Panoramic View of Patristics" by Fr Tadros Malaty.
The first is easy to obtain from Amazon, the second is more difficult, I am still trying to find a personal copy from the internet. It is brilliant for an overview of doctrine and patristics though.
"The true Christian is a warrior making his way through the regiments of the invisible enemy to his heavenly homeland." - St Herman of Alaska.
