Eastern Christian monasticism and a history of
Orthodox monasteries in America,

Orthodox Christian monasteries,
 An enticing travel guide for those seeking to
visit American monasteries and to "sample"
monastic life.
In addition, twenty-three selected monasteries share
their "personal stories" and offer a glimpse in the surprising spiritual appeal of monastic life in 21st
century America.
Edited by Alexei Krindatch. 150 pages of text are accompanied by four sets of color maps and more

Whether you want to know about the history and theology of Orthodox monasticism or you just want to know
what to expect if you visit, the stories, maps, and directories here are invaluable."
