Book Review #1

Our Thoughts Determine Our Lives:  The Life and Teachings of Elder Thaddeus of VitovnicaOur Thoughts Determine Our Lives:  The Life and Teachings of Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica by Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the most, if not the most, spiritually beneficial books I have ever read. Elder Thaddeus approaches the indulgence of sin from a seemingly unique and yet patristic angle, giving advice that is burning with love and exemplary of the meekness and kindness espoused by Our Lord.


The only negative aspect of this book was that it was virtually just a  collexion of quotes (though some were quite long), and this sometimes made it hard to read the book straight through. On the other hand, this configuration could in fact be spiritually beneficial, as it forces the reader (and gives them the ability) to stop and consider each individual quote.
