More About the Author

Father Spyridon is a Greek Orthodox priest serving in Herefordshire, England. He has previously published a number of books of poetry and novels under his name in the world, Darren Bailey.

As an ordained priest in the Greek Orthodox Church Father Spyridon has focussed on spiritual themes: Journey To Mount Athos, his first of these books, details his trip to the Holy Mountain where he encountered monks and hermits and was allowed access to a way of life few of us have encountered

The Ancient Path is a series of reflections on various aspects of life using the Church Fathers as the starting point in which Father Spyridon identifies how far modern man has strayed from an authentic Christian view of the universe.

Trampling Down Death By Death explores various themes relating to death and resurrection. It is deeply hopeful book that brings the reader into a vivid sense of the full reality of God's purpose for us.

Fire On The Lips is his return to the novel. A young couple have a chance encounter with an Orthodox monk which develops into a life-long friendship. The book explores the reality of sainthood in the modern world and drawing on a number of real events takes the reader into the mystery of ancient spirituality. Sub-titled "Encounters With A Saint" it demonstrates that Christian holiness is as real today as it was in the deserts of Egypt sixteen hundred years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning! 17 Sept. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The htemes of marriage, spirituality, death, work and loneliness take us through a wide range of human emotions on a brutally honest journey. I found myself getting quite emotional at a couple of his poems and there were other times when I laughed aloud. I am grateful for this book which has helped me to understand some of my own struggles in life. It is honest, touching, beautiful and powerful. I cannot recommend this book enough.,

So much poetry is middle class nonsense and riddles. This book cuts through all of that and speaks directly to other human beings. I'm a big fan of Bukowski and this is one of the few poets I can read and believe in. I've become a fan and want to meet him. I can't believe I'm alive at the same time as someone who writes this kind of stuff. I'm in his world and I believe his vision - I'm in!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 25 Sept. 2012
By cornutus - Published on
This collection of poems has been on my bed satnd for two weeks and i keep going back to it. The poems are accessible and direct, a little like Bukowski, but the subject matter is powerful. The spirituality of the writer comes through even when he's talking about marriage, drinking, his children or God. I enjoyed this book a lot and have suggested it to my friends. Highly recommended.

accessible, honest and moving
poems from a real life, not idealised.
It is refreshing to hear a voice written from the heart
without any agenda of self deception.
