Mount Athos: The History of the Greek Mountain and the Center of Eastern Orthodox Monasticism

“Clear water where evergreens, azaleas cool ceremoniously…a kele lost among cedars, its roof open to eagles, door unhinged…silver leaves like a congregation of spiders…” When one hears these enchanting descriptions, from poet David Posner’s 1964 composition “Mount Athos,” it is not difficult to understand why this sleepy paradise is often extolled as the most peaceful and private corner of Greece, if not all of Europe. Mount Athos is the easternmost finger of the Halkidiki peninsula – a mountainous sliver of land that stretches about 37.3 miles long and 4.3-7.5 miles wide, with a surface area of about 150 square miles. Towering over the tightly-packed chestnut forests and the blue, crystalline waters of the Aegean Sea at a height of 6,670 feet is the snow-dusted crest of the mighty mountain itself.

Known to the locals as Agion Oros, or the “Holy Mountain,” the peninsula today is most famed for its exclusivity, a place that continues to bar all women and their daughters from entry. The fortress-like monasteries scattered amongst the slopes and the clusters of cells clinging to the cliffs are occupied by monks of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Of course, its male-only population is just one aspect of the peninsula’s anomalous nature.

Planted on the peninsula’s coast is a black Byzantine Cross, a flat, cross-shaped monument with a trinity of flared, wide-armed, Greek crosses in place of its arms and a traditional Christian cross in its center, kissed with rust. It serves as an emblem of the monastic society that resides there, and it delineates the boundary between Mount Athos and the rest of Greece. Entering this hallowed peninsula is like setting foot into a living time capsule, because life here has not changed in well over 1,000 years. Mount Athos is one of only two places on earth (the other being the Mar Saba) that chooses to run on “Byzantine time,” meaning Hour 0:00:00 only begins at sundown. Moreover, it is the only territory in the world that flies the Byzantine flag, a regal, sword and cross clutching double-headed eagle set against a rippling canvas of gold.

Of course, to reduce Mount Athos to an antediluvian, single-sex monastic retreat would be an oversimplification of the fascinating history and simple, yet complex culture that has developed on this stunning strip of land. This is a place as mystically mysterious as it is serene, a space abound with treasures, miracles, and spiritual revelations. But for a place where purity and God-fearing devotion apparently reign supreme, it is certainly burdened with its fair share of controversy.

Mount Athos: The History of the Greek Mountain and the Center of Eastern Orthodox Monasticism looks at the unique region and what life has been like there since medieval times. Along with pictures depicting important people, places, and events, you will learn about Mount Athos like never before.

The Book of Romans: A New Testament Bible Commentary

by Phanuel Muverengwi

“To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be his holy people: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 1:7 (NIV)

Paul’s letter to the Romans lays out the concrete foundation of Christianity, without which no Christian may be able to withstand the machinations of the devil. Paul’s letter answers the basic questions like:
-What is salvation?
-What does it mean to be saved?
-How can I be saved?

This is the kind of knowledge that every Christian needs to grasp in order not to be misled by perverted teachings.

This book is not your usual kind of bible commentary. Instead, it is a serious attempt to convey Paul’s teachings in as simple a way as possible, to the end that many might find the book easy to read and understand. The book is therefore suitable even for pre-teens.

All bible verses quoted in the book were taken from the New International Version.

The Redemption of Evalisa Trooge: A Christmas Carol Story

by Lauren M. Flauding

Evalisa Trooge is the 33-year-old embittered and stingy owner of Victorian Village, a Christmas-themed park which she inherited from her parents. But on Christmas Eve, when she’s on the verge of selling the park, she endures a long night of visits, memories, romantic revelations and bizarre events, and discovers the courage to save the park, find love, and change her life.

This short story is a modern take on the Charles Dickens classic: A Christmas Carol, and is a joyful reminder of the power of love, kindness, and restitution.
