Donna Perpetua is an Orthodox Christian writer who lives in Michigan with her husband and her mom. She edited and wrote the introduction and supplementary materials for the first volume of our series Ancient Examples: Writings of the Early Christians for Today, St. Justin Martyr and St. Perpetua.
She has a number of other Orthodox Christian works planned.
Donna Perpetua enjoys making pilgrimages to Orthodox monasteries in America. She was pleased to discover an icon of her name Saint at the Holy Dormition of the Mother of God Orthodox Monastery in Rives Junction, Michigan. She is considering learning how to write icons.
She is a Goodreads Author, where she occasionally blogs at Donna Perpetua's Prayers, and also a LibraryThing Author, where she keeps a catalog of her books on Orthodoxy and Iconography.
James A. Cox, editor-in-Chief of Midwest Book Review, had this to say about the volume from which this large print edition is exerpted:
Ancient Examples: St. Justin Martyr and St. Perpetua features more than 1,200 footnotes and additional commentary by Donna Perpetua who also shares a number of unique experiences involved in preparing this volume, experiences that reflect the power of the Holy Spirit today. Carefully selected epigraphs appear throughout. A unique and invaluable addition to church, seminary, and academic library Christian Studies and Christian History collections, it should be noted for the personal reading lists of seminary students, clergy, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject.
