On March 1, Paraclete Press will release the book An Inner Step Toward God: Writings and Teachings on Prayer by Father Alexander Men. I was the project editor for this translation. "Project editing" entailed checking translations, writing the introduction, providing endnotes for historical or theological clarification, hunting down several English language translations of sources that Father Alexander cited, and making collective format decisions with the book's translator, Christa Belyaeva. It was a delight to work on the project with Christa. We hope you enjoy the book.
