Amy VG4 Stars Out Of 5a little gem!January 14, 2016Amy VGQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.
Carrie Wulfsberg5 Stars Out Of 5March 6, 2009Carrie WulfsbergThis 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.
