The above video is a recording of my talk on The Scent of Holiness to an audience at Apostle Paul Orthodox Christian Bookstore in Toronto on St. Demetrios’ feast day (October 26) via Google Plus. It begins with the book trailer and goes into the talk from there. I talk a bit about my background, read a couple excerpts from the book, and speak about what we can gain from visiting Orthodox monasteries. The first three minutes of the talk have an echo but it gets cleared up pretty quickly. The last fifteen minutes or so I answer some questions.
For you Greek speakers, Fr. Seraphim the Sabbite (from the Great Lavra Monastery of St. Sabbas the Sanctified in Palestine) gave a review of my book this past Sunday in Thessaloniki. You can view it here.
For those of you who have read the book, don’t be shy, I’d love to hear which stories you liked best!
