Thank you, Gebre and Volnutt, for the suggestions.

Stavros, that is a good book.
I don't think you could find a better single volume than her Complete Stories.

That's actually the one I found on Amazon when I searched for the first recommended title.

Bread & Water, Wine & Oil, by Fr. Meletios Webber.

Thanks for the recommendation, Achronos and Habte. So far, so good! This book is exactly what I need right now.
Glad to hear it!

im reading... this

God’s Grandeur - Gerard Manley Hopkins


THE WORLD is charged with the grandeur of God.
  It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
  It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;         5
  And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
  And wears man’s smudge and shares man’s smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
  There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;         10
And though the last lights off the black West went
  Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs—
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
  World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

I just finished a dry, but interesting book entitled 'The Birth of Classical Europe: A History from Troy to Augustine' It gives context to the development of the western and eastern threads of Orthodox Christianity at the beginning of the Christian era. http://www.amazon.com/Birth-Classical-Europe-History-Augustine/dp/0670022470

I'm currently reading The Epistemological Foundations of the Existential Theology of Soren Kierkegaard as Examined and Contrasted by the Orthodox Theology of the Second, Fifth, and Seveth Ecumenical Coucils By Wolgang Van Hoffenhausen

It's a bit dry.

^BTW, this was only a joke!  ;D If such a book really existed, I would not dare try to tackle it.

The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner.

I wonder if Benjy is based off of Lennie.

Ha! You got me. The sad thing is that it is something that I might actually read.  :D

A War Like No Other by Victor Davis Hanson.  It's about the Peloponnesian War.  I skimmed through it back in college, mostly to get information on Brasidas and Lysander for a paper on unorthodox Spartan commanders.  The more I read the book the more I find how unorthodox the entire war was.

Also, I am finishing up the Gospel of John and started on the Book of Judges.
