The Best of Jonathan’s Corner, newly expanded after getting five star reviews, is a collection of varied works of Eastern Orthodox mystical theology. It spans many topics and many different genres of writing, but it keeps coming back to the biggest questions of all. It is inexhaustible: the works are independent, and you can read a few, many, or all of them to suit your taste. Fans of CS Lewis and GK Chesterton will love it.
A series of essays on a variety of topics relating to religion and spirituality. The author has a stunning amount of knowledge of these topics, and he manages to convey said knowledge in a way that is understandable even for those like me who know little about the subject.
The writing is good too, and engaging, which isn’t always the case with essays. I look forward to reading other books by this author – he is very insightful, and I learned a great deal.
