This large-format, fine-art “coffee table” book represents the culmination of a unique, multi-year project and publication, which has combined crowdfunding, social media, and an unprecedented photographic pilgrimage to over thirty Orthodox monasteries across the American continent, to help raise awareness of and interest in the Orthodox Church and its ancient monastic traditions, and thus contribute to the “churching” of America.

Proceed to the Thebaid Store to get the full details and pre-order.
