Origen, Prayer, Exhortation to Martyrdomby Walter J. Burghardt
Pub. Date: 06/28/1954
Publisher: Paulist Press
Composed c. 233, the treatise on Prayer is not merely a treatise, but a prayer itself. The Exhortation was composed c. 235 to provide solace for Origen's great friend and patron, Ambrose, and the presbyter, Protoctetus, both of whom had been imprisoned.

Basically a boiled down version of Origens greatest works. Inspiring and engrossing, this book shows why Origen is without a doubt, the most influencial church father.
