  • My Thoughts on Meditations

    By G.Gregoretti
    It’s so exhilarating to read a series of poems that were written by Emperor Marcus Aurelius some 2,000 years ago! I thoroughly enjoyed reading the insights provided by Marcus Aurelius, and I was so mesmerized by the fact that he is a firm adherent to the Stoic philosophy!
  • Follow Jesus

    By LordJudah
    Acts 17:16 is where Paul first taught Christ , his death , and resurrection to the stoic’s during his passing and travel in Athens. Some of them stoics listened , and followed Christ and marveled at Paul’s teachings . Some mocked him and didn’t confess their accept to Jesus as lord. The stoics carried wisdom , but the Gospel brings the true revelation . Follow Christ and the teaching of Paul to the gentiles. Just as many stoics once had to make the decision to do as well .

    I started this read and am abandoning it before I have even completed the introduction. The typos are terrible. Don’t bother with this one.

  • Diamonds in the Rough

    By Schoolbreeze
    If you can bear the archaic language, you will enjoy this book. The best part is the appendix.
  • Victorian translation.

    By Alberic6
    Victorian translation. Accurate, but sounds a bit stilted to a modern ear.
