    I always look for new releases in English of Matthew the Poor as he is one of my favorite spiritual guides Matthew the Poor continues to offer practical advice on how one ought to live a Christian life He explains I this book that he was not called to give theological sermons His calling was to speak frankly and provide guidance to those seeking to follow God He speaks as if he was talking to a friend.Each chapter stands on its own and Matthew the Poor discusses a specific topic The translation is excellent, it is easy to read and comprehend from an English perspective, however the spiritual insight is deep and his guidance is direct and will challenge you But if you are able to follow is advice then you will be a little loser to the kingdom of heaven

    Father Matta was a Christian monk of our time, he lived in the desert of Egypt like the first christian ermits and was the abbot of saint Macarius monastery However he had a deep understanding of men s and women s minds of our time, and knew how to transmit the spiritual path of the early Christianity to both lay people and monks This book is a message of hope and a precious guide for those who want to strengthen their faith or possibly to restore it and also who wish to concretely live the Christian path, to pray, to meditate Father Matta wrote other very inspiring books translated into English as Orthodox Prayer Life The Interior Way The particularity of Fr Matta was his wonderful strong love and trust in Jesus Christ under any circumstances The words tranlated and presented in this book are a nice anthology of Abuna Matta talks

    The persecuted Church is a practical Church In the persecuted Church will not find the complicated theologies common in areas where Christianity is dominant, or at least not actively persecuted.This book, by a Coptic Orthodox monk, is evidence of that It is always simple, clear, and to the point Want to know how to resist sin To advance in your spiritual walk Then this is the book for you.
