by Frederica Mathewes-Green; December 2005; 128 pages; Paperback.


Join Frederica Mathewes-Green on a guided retreat - ideal for the Lenten Season - through the classic Great Canon, a wise, ancient, Orthodox text that will enrich your experience of spirituality and prayer.

First Fruits of Prayer will bring readers of all denominational backgrounds into the prayer experience of first millennium Christianity through immersion in this fascinating text, a poetic hymn written in the eighth century. This extraordinarily beautiful work, still chanted by Eastern Christians every Lent, weaves together Old and New Testament Scriptures with prayers of hope and repentance. It offers ancient ways of seeing Christ that will nevertheless feel new to most readers today.

This insightful book offers readers an opportunity to walk through a classic text from the Christian East in a series of forty prayerful readings with accompanying commentary and questions for further reflection.
