People often ask me about books. The one I've been recommending most in the last few years is The Arena, by St. Ignatius Brianchaninov, a Russian Orthodox bishop of the last century who was canonized in 1988. Although written by a rigorous monk for fellow monastics, all Christians possessing the courage and discipline to engage this book with attention and obedience may study it with great profit. --Fr. Thomas Hopko, dean emeritus, St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary
