Does anyone by chance have a copy of The Ladder of Divine Ascent, by Holy Transfiguration Monastery, available in your Church bookstore? It is not currently available online...

If you can't find the Holy Transfiguration translation, there is also a paperback from Paulist Press in their Classics of Western Spirituality series out there.

Yes I heard about that version, but all of the Orthodox reviews I have read do not speak very highly of it... Have you by chance read both versions? I'd really like to read it through Lent, but the HTM version is not available on their site again until after Lent is over...

Have you tried the St Nectarios Bookstore? They have about the best selection of Orthodox books available for sale online.

Talking about how to buy books online. Does anyone know of a North American online source for the books of Alexandros Papadiamantis?

Those are my top sources for finding books online. I would probably add archangelsbooks.com, and orthodoxbookstore.ecrater.com to that list as well. The latter URL usually has great prices on sets, especially the commentary releases from Holy Cross.

On used texts, particularly those from larger collections, windowsbooks.com is a great resource. I've been able to source individual volumes of the Ante, Nicene, and Post-Nicene Fathers in great condition for $11 each. Orders over $20 get a 10% discount, which basically covers tax/shipping.

Good ole Amazon.com is also typically great on the more 'popular' titles. They have a convenient trade-in policy that allows you to trade in DVDs, books, and electronics for store credit. I was able to get rid of a ton of dust-gathering college books on an unused shelf, and use the proceeds to buy Orthodox titles.

Along the same lines, is anyone familiar with a source for "Conversations with children: Communicating our faith" by Sister Magdalen of St John's monastery in Essex? I can't seem to find a US source with this title...at least without paying an arm and leg. Should only run about $20-30, I'd imagine. Her other small title that SVS Press puts out is readily available. I've only seen this title on personal shelves, but nothing for sale. Thanks!

I have the one from the Paulist Press. Why is't it good?
Also, many of these links are from US. I live in EU and there is an extra tax for books imported to Sweden, plus that tax can be approximative (sometimes to high).

In my opinion, it is not translated as well as the one from Holy Transfiguration Monastery. Although I did not use a critical Greek text at the time, when I compared them back in the 1980s, I found the translation from HTM to be more Orthodox Christian in phronema than the one from PP.

I hope this helps!

With agape in our Lords Jesus Christ,
