Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World, 01/04/1998 Review: "Shimmering watercolors with fine pen detailing illumine every exquisite, double-page spread while gold-trimmed pages exude the aura of Egyptian opulence and the story's royal overtones."

    $24.95

    Life is truly a remarkable experience and gift. Travel with me through my journey to find The Pearl of Great Price, that treasure of spirituality, which I sold all to obtain. "If you don't believe in the reality of spiritual warfare, if you are convinced that miracles belong to a bygone era, or if you have always assumed that all paths to the Orthodox Church are basically the same, then you must read The Pearl of Great Price. The book is likewise a precious gem-a moving memoir that you are sure to treasure for its grateful testament to the grace of God. - Bobby Maddex Operations Manager, Ancient Faith Radio Senior Editor, Salvo Magazine" "In her insightful memoir, Polly st John-Hughes has given us an original view of Orthodoxy: one from the perspective of a practitioner of Eastern and New Age religions. The spiritual contest is powerful, and the goodness of our God evident, on every page." - Frederica Mathewes-Green Khouria of Holy Cross Orthodox Church Author of Facing East: A Pilgrim's Journey into the Mysteries of Orthodoxy.

  9. Born to Hate Reborn to Love

    $25.95

    Born to Hate, Reborn to Love is a story for our generation, a story that brings comfort, reassurance and hope to a world immersed in confusion, rejection and despair. Repelled and repulsed by those who ostensibly represented the Christian faith in his juvenescence, Klaus Kenneth naturally looked elsewhere for the solution to his lonely and tortured existence. In his sincere search for escape from rejection and abuse, Klaus found himself on an odyssey that took him around the world several times, lured him into a vortex of pleasure and power, and initiated him into the great philosophies and religious traditions of our times. Having tried it all, and reaching the very brink of the abyss of despair and the desire for nonexistence, Klaus encounters the One whom he had never thought to look for, the One that he had always discounted: the great I AM, the God of Love and healing, the God of regeneration and eternal life. Klaus Kenneth How many people do you know who have faced a firing squad or had conversations with Mother Teresa? Klaus Kenneth has experienced both in his most extraordinary life. Klaus is an Orthodox Christian and spiritual child of Elder Sophrony of Essex. He was born into extremely unfortunate circumstances at the end of World War II: his father abandoned his family not long after they settled in their new home, his mother rejected him, and he was abused, mentally and physically, by a priest who promised to "educate" him. As Klaus sought to escape the hell of being unloved, he began to look for a way out of his misery, which took him on a journey through the manifold pleasures and promises of "this world": rock music, sex, drugs, the Occult, Transcendental Meditation, the religious traditions of North and South America, Africa and the Middle East (including Israel), India and the Orient. His quest literally took him around the world several times over. He tried it all. But as Klaus himself relates in this remarkable story, the longest and hardest journey of all was the one that goes from head to heart. Not content with words alone, Klaus applied himself diligently to everything that he tried. In the process, he learned the techniques of the Occult, he was regarded as a guru in India, where he spent a number of years, and later believed that he would end his life as a Buddhist monk in Thailand. The list of his experiences, the places he visited, and the people he met is endless. And along the way, he was given profound spiritual experiences, which led him to the One that he had always discounted – Jesus Christ. Though entirely unaware of it at the time, Klaus' "return" to Christianity began in Calcutta, with Mother Teresa, his first mother. It was facilitated later by the famous Protestant pastor, Maurice Ray, the first father-figure in Klaus' life, from whom he had received exorcism. And it was brought to completion by Elder Sophrony of Essex, whose unconditional love and genuine friendship initiated Klaus into a world that he had never suspected even existed. Because of the sincerity of his desire, God revealed himself to Klaus, brought him out of the chaos of our syncretistic culture, and led him to the place where the realization of our true personhood in and through Jesus Christ may be accomplished – the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, the Orthdox Church. Published here for the first time in English, Born to Hate, Reborn to Love is already a best seller in several other languages. It has been published in Bulgarian, Croatian, French, German, Greek, Serbian, Romanian, Russian. Learn More
