    This book is a real gem! I read it in less than 24 hours, I could not put it down. I enjoyed Fredercia Mathewes-Green's easy, conversational writing style. And the content was superb! Taking her knowledge and background (she is a Khouria, spiritual mother, at Holy Cross Orthodox Church), the author clearly lays out a picture of the life of an ancient Christian living around 400AD. The author obviously has a good amount of knowledge of the Bible, as well as, the numerous writings from the ancient Christian church. And she gleans from both to portray a fictional family, easily and clearly how they would have lived and practiced as Christians in this time period. I had so many "a ha!" moments. This little book will be one I read over and over to glean the knowledge it contains. The title says it all: "capture the vibrant faith of ancient Christians", I recommend it if you would like to learn more on how to live a vibrant faith. I think the only downside, it's pretty light, more of an introduction. The author has a detailed book list in the back so the reader can delve deeper when ready.

    This book is the companion to another book called "The Open Door: Entering the Sanctuary of Icons and Prayer." Both books are deeply moving devotionals worthy of repeated meditation. I would reccommend them highly and think they would be a outstanding reading choices for a women's book club.
