Flowers from the Desert: Sayings on Humility, Obedience, Repentance, and Love from the Christian Hermits of Ancient Times
Translated from the Greek, compiled, and arranged by Archbishop Chrysostomos of Etna
A handsomely-printed devotional volume. Perfect as a gift for Orthodox and non-Orthodox alike. The author—well-known for crisp, witty, and accurate translations—has selected his favorite aphorisms and inspiring stories from the more than ten volumes of translations that he has made to date from the Desert Fathers. A Romanian version of this volume was published in the spring of 2003 by Editura Vremea in Bucharest, where it met with immediate success.
