Finished a Book...

I just finished reading the Life of St. Eustathios that is published by the nuns at St. John the Forerunner Monastery in Goldendale, WA.

Here is the description of the book on their website:
St. Eustathios was a general in the Roman Army and friend of Emperor Trajan. After being converted to Christianity through a divine vision, he was stripped of imperial honors, imprisoned, and exiled with his wife and two young children. He was separated from his family under the most tragic circumstances, only to be reunited with them in glory thriteen years later, shortly before their martyrdom. St. Eustathios is praised in the hymnography of the Church as a second Job because of his incredible indurance in hardships and patient perserverance in temptations. The life of Saints Eustathios, Theopisti, Agapios and Theopistos is an inspiration and an example for all Christians, especially those who encounter numerous trials in their spiritual life. Written specifically for young adults, this captivating story will be enjoyed by readers of all ages. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches; 128 pages paperback with pencil illustrations within.

Here is a link to their website in case you want to order it for yourself or for someone you love (DH might be using it in his middle school sunday school class).
