There is no original compiler's name. There is no original publication date. No introduction, no footnotes, no scholarly apparatus at all. There is no visible plan of organization, other than sayings organized under headings such as 'Prayer' or 'Reading Spiritual Books' or 'A Spiritual Father' or 'Family Life,' and even these are arranged haphazardly (so it seems), not even alphabetically. There is no index, nothing about the authors. But here is a treasure of a book-maybe the most valuable in the constellation of beautiful books our store contains. Each saying could be a word for the moment, for the day, or one that could change the course of your life. The perfect completion and companion to the Optina Elders series, it also stands alone. 205 pp.

An Eighth Day View:

Now in its second printing, this modest work is an anthology of spiritual advice given by various of the nineteenth-century teachers of Optina Monastery in central Russia, organized thematically under headings such as spiritual warfare, the love of neighbor, faith, the will of God, the education of children, the commandments of God, the path of salvation, etc. Each piece of advice varies in length from a single sentence to a full paragraph. Pithy, immediately accessible, and universally applicable, these counsels resemble the sayings of the ancient Desert Fathers. Appropriate both for prolonged study and for daily devotional reading.
