Great Lent - Journey to Pascha : (Fr. A. Schmemann) ($10)

If you want to take this Lenten season seriously, this book is a must to read. It goes through the preparation for lent, the Lenten worship, why we fast and the meaning of fasting the meaning of the liturgy of the presanctified gifts, the prayer of St. Ephraim, the Great Canon of St. Andrew of Crete, and other neglected or misunderstood treasures of Lenten worship.

The Jesus Prayer: ( A monk of the Eastern Church) ($10)
"0 Lord Jesus Christ Son of God have mercy on me a sinner"

This is an excellent book for prayer and meditation. It provides you with both the historical and spiritual understanding of the prayer, which simply invokes the name of Jesus. It reveals the spiritual and patristic origins of the prayer, its ascetic tradition and the practice of the prayer down to our daily life. Soon you will realize that, any book written by Fr. Lev Gillete, the monk of the Eastern Church, is usually simple to read but deep in its spirituality.

The Way of A Pilgrim: ($8)

This is a great classic of Russian Orthodox spirituality, especially on the origin and practice of the Jesus prayer. The pilgrim begins by encountering the biblical command to Pray without ceasing (I Thess. 5:17). How can this be, he asks. He searched during his pilgrimage for an answer, until he discovered the Jesus prayer that led him to dwell in the very presence of the Living God. It is a remarkable, but real, story that you will enjoy. It can open up the heart of someone seeking to pray without ceasing.
