The Holy Fire: The Story of the Fathers of the Eastern Church
St Vladimir's Seminary Press, 1980 - 303 páginas
Lives and writings of ten great leaders: Clement of Alexandria, Athanasius, Basil the Great, John Chrysostom and others. In them we see the apostolic fire become crystallized not only into dogma and external order but also into some of the world's great religious literature.

An excellent account of the lives of the Holy Fathers. Probably the best I have ever read. The author manages to strip off the archaic and mythical personas which are often falsely attributed to these heroes of the faith. A great read for anyone who is seeking to gain real, well-rounded insight into these once-mysterious lives.
